The Etruscan, like many other European peoples, used to bury their dead people in underground chambers. The original Roman custom was cremation, after which the burnt remains were kept in a pot, ash-chest or urn, often in a columbarium. From about the 2nd century AD, inhumation became more fashionable in graves or sarcophagi, often elaborately carved, for those who could afford them. Christians also preferred burial to cremation because of their belief in bodily resurrection. So they built a vast systems of galleries underground. Bodies were placed in chambers in stone sarcophagi in their clothes and bound in linen. Then the chamber was sealed with a slab bearing the name, age and the day of death. Fresco decorations were typically Roman. There are so many catacombs in Rome: Saint Agnes , St Sebastian; Domitilla, St Callisto; St Peter and Marcellinus ecc.
