Headstone Art

A cemetery tour with Robin McKee of Historical Perceptions will also serve as an introduction to the art and craftsmanship represented in the various memorial markers and head stones that are visited. Robin sometimes describes the cemetery as both a "museum without walls" and an "art gallery." He will draw to your attention the artistic motifs represented in the memorials that you visit and will explain how the symbols of life and death have been portrayed in memorial markers through the years. His observations will help you develop a deeper appreciation for the head stones and memorials that you view whenever you visit a cemetery.

In time we hope to append illustrations of some of the more distinctive grave markers represented in the Hamilton Cemetery.
