|Class Description: |
The gravestones of our ancestors are filled with symbols and emblems. Many of our ancestors were illiterate and unable to read text on the stones. But without being able to read a word, our ancestors could tell if the deceased was male or female, was faithful, worthy of love and respect, a member of a fraternal organization or religion, or even had a sense of humor. Symbols are the universal language, but their meanings have become lost over time. Learn how to interpret the cryptic signs and symbols found on the monuments of the dearly departed. We will view photos of actual gravestones and monuments taken by the author from all over the world. We will also relate cemetery history and stories and discuss proper etiquette when visiting these sacred locations. A little history, a lot of symbolism, and a little humor.
Gain knowledge of cemetery history, the many styles and construction of monuments, and the translation of the many cryptic symbols and emblems found on our ancestors' tomb stones. Learn a new language.
