Though gravestone studies is not a wildly popular topic, if you have any interest at all in those eerie, evocative 17th and 18th century markers, this book is a must-have. The author, James Slater, is a retired University of Connecticut professor who is thoroughly versed in research techniques and standards. This study, compiling the results of years of extensive, painstaking research into local ancient burying grounds and vital records, is priceless for the wealth of information it contains. In addition to describing and illustrating the artistic styles and components habitually used by the creators of these works of art and iconography, Dr. Slater also discusses what little is known about their carvers, much of this biographical info having been unearthed by him in the course of his studies. Beautifully written and photographed, and highly recommended to any student of this slice of our history.
