Vestiges of Mortality and Remembrance

£39.99

Product description

Sub title “A bibliography on the Historical Archaeology of Cemeteries.” With increased demands for archaeological assistance to identify and preserve threatened historical cemeteries, this comprehensive reference work will prove useful. An introductory essay provides an overview of scholarly trends and prospects, demonstrates the interpretive potential of historical mortuary sites, and offers a means to integrate multidisciplinary inquiry within a broader view of the historical past. The bibliography, indexed by keywords, includes over 1,900 citations to scholarly research on cemetery sites dating from the 15th through the 20th century. Bibliographic references also include archaeological survey and excavation reports; the physical and forensic anthropology of historical populations; the history of death, mourning, and burial; studies of the grave markers and cemetery landscape; and the law and ethics of sepulchre, curation, and repatriation of human remains and funerary objects.

This book will benefit archaeologists, physical, forensic, and cultural anthropologists, historians, material culture scholars, cultural resource managers, museums, state and federal agencies, law enforcement professionals and attorneys, funeral service professionals, and other groups involved in cemetery preservation and in the debate on the repatriation of curated human remains and funerary material. Child's coffin handle adapted from Illustrated Catalogue of American Hardware of the Russell and Erwin Manufacturing Company. All of the information contained in the book pertains to the United States and Canada.

Scarecrow publishing hardback with no DJ. Good binding. Light blue cloth covered boards with a central dark blue oblong with silver print on the front; dark blue print to spine. No marks
