The cemetery

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter focuses on the great transformation of the European cemetery between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as it was moved away from churchyards. The functions as well as the forms of the new cemetery form a key part of the analysis, as does the impact of the new models particularly on the United States, but also on Egypt. A final section sketches some further evolution since the late nineteenth century. Modern changes in cemetery form invite consideration for their implications concerning larger understandings of death.
