Necrogeography: Understanding the Cultural Geography of Cemeteries
With a basic understanding of necrogeography, a visitor to a cemetery will be able to "read" its tale. Without delving into history books, the casual visitor can unlock mysteries as to a city's growth and development, prominent citizens, economic turns and tragedies. Using the Broadway Cemetery in Galveston as a backdrop, the course will take an educational stroll and let the secrets of the graves unfold.
