The dead and the living meet in the cemetery and how this relationship unfolds in the 19th and 20th centuries is explored from the starting point of one excavation in Copenhagen. This book investigates the material conclusions of these interactions including cemetery working practices, landscape design, gravestones, coffins, grave goods and the bodies lying within it.
Materialising modern cemeteries is Sian Anthony’s doctoral thesis from the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History, Lund University.
