The tradition of placing casket flowers to memorialize the deceased is believed to have originated over 62,000 years ago. During an archeological dig in the 1950s, in the caves of Northern Iraq, Dr. Ralph Solecki and his team discovered multiple burial sites showing evidence of pollen and flower fragments from eight species of wildflowers. This study concluded that humankind was responsible for roaming the mountainside in search of collecting flowers for the funeral tribute.
