Dead Interesting


08/07/2011 - 10/07/2011

Enjoy exploring places celebrating life and death, such as Sherborne cemetery and discovering stories of the past. This may prompt you to reminisce about your own family histories and share these with the group. You shall see how the dead of different generations are represented in various forms, be it simple headstones and memorials or elaborate monuments, mausoleums and stained glass windows. You shall consider how changes in burial practices reflect attitudes of the living towards the dead, and discuss alternatives to traditional practices in an increasingly secular age.
