Item description for Understanding Scottish Graveyards by Betty Willsher...
There is a strange fascination about graveyards; many of us are drawn to them. We seek the peace of city cemeteries or wander around picturesque country churchyards. And while we marvel at the variety and beauty of the monuments, we puzzle over the significance of the carvings. Each stone page tells its own story and kindles the imagination. However, our graveyards face an uncertain future. In this revised and updated edition of the highly acclaimed guide Understanding Scottish Graveyards, the author helps us to interpret the stories and symbols of the stones and set them within their historical context. Practical advice, contact details and reference material about recording and conserving this crucial part of Scotland's heritage is included.
