|Class Description: |
Cemeteries and grave yards are full of people with stories to tell. But many of our ancestors were illiterate. Without being able to read a word, our ancestors understood the meaning of the many cryptic symbols and emblems on tomb stones. Symbols are the universal language. We can tell if the deceased was male or female, religious, well loved, a member of a fraternal organization or even had a sense of humor. Through the use of hundreds of photos taken by the presenter, you will learn the language of symbols, the history of modern cemeteries, history and proper cemetery etiquette. A lot of symbolism, some history and even a little humor.
Learn the meaning of common symbols and graphics on tombstones, and a little history of modern cemeteries.
