|Class Description: |
The symbols and markings on gravestones offer a wealth of information about the deceased. But you must understand the language. Many of our ancestors were illiterate and could not read all the carved text on the stones. But symbols are a universal language. Was this a person of faith? A member of a fraternal organization or religion? Well loved? Had a sense of humor? We will discuss the history of cemeteries, various cultures and beliefs, the symbols and carvings, and even a little humor. You’ll never look at a cemetery the same way again.
Learn the meaning of common symbols and graphics on tombstones, and a little history of modern cemeteries.
