Thread Name: Origins: Buried alive - is this story true?
Subject: RE: Origins: Buried alive - is this story true?
I found an article through Google (haven't read it yet) that takes you to JSTOR (a subscription journal source for academic and other libraries). This is the Google link. Historical Traditions in English Folk-Tales, from Folklore, Vol. 75, No. 4 (Winter, 1964), pp. 225-242.

I went to our university library and found and downloaded the article. If someone wants to read it there is a "lite" PDF version that shouldn't mess up your email too bad. PM me with your details and I'll send it as an attachment. This is a half-meg, the big version is about 1.5 meg.
