This view enlarges upon traditional interpretations founded on the premise that mortuary practices are a direct reflection of social organization, where variation equals status representation, in the recognition that social ideologies as well as attitudes to life and death also play a part in mortuary behavior. Ancestor traditions provide a key to unlocking the processes of urbanization and state formation along the Euphrates river valley, Syria, in the third millennium BC, and point to the socio-economic system from which this derived. In some places ancestor traditions were part of a complex dynamic of representations of the social group in relation to place, expressed in the physical containment of ancestors in monumental and visible burial mounds
