The images on gravestones can mean so much.  Sometimes they are simply just decoration, but particularly on earlier gravestones there can be symbolism that tells you about the person who died, their beliefs, or maybe the beliefs of those who buried them.

This book will help you to understand the meaning of gravestones, as well as giving an insight into the history of mourning and burial, and a look at some of the many interesting gravestones in Edinburgh’s churchyards and cemeteries.  It can only ever be an introduction to the subject, but hopefully by the time you’ve read it, you’ll want to get out and explore graveyards and see what more you can discover
