With Lorraine Evans 

Funerary monuments and grave markers are an important part of our heritage and deserve to be treated as such. They reflect the lives, beliefs, and attitudes to death of past communities and individuals. In essence, they provide a window into our ancestors’ thoughts and deeds. From the dawning of the Reformation to the emergence of lawn cemeteries in the twentieth century, this talk endeavours to explore the rich social history funerary monuments can impart, weaving, at times, a long forgotten narrative.

Lorraine Evans is a Mortuary Archaeologist and Death Historian specialising in nonconformist burial practices, funerary construction, and the social histories of mortality. A best-selling author, her latest book Burying the Dead explores the archaeological history of burying grounds, she is presently completing her PhD at the IISPG.
