Abstract:
The proceedings of a conference held at the School of Conservation Sciences, Bournemouth University, in April 1997. The papers are gathered into four sections, the first providing a general introduction to funerary practices in post-medieval England comprises: `The English funeral 1700--1850' by Julian Litten (3--16); `An introductory guide to textiles from 18th and 19th century burials' by Robert Janaway (17--32); `Romancing the stones: the graveyard boom in the later 18th century' by Sarah Tarlow (33--43); `A new burial form and its meanings: cemetery establishment in the first half of the 19th century' by Julie Rugg (44--53); and `Burial on the margin: distance and discrimination in early modern London' by Vanessa Harding (54--64). The second section provides archaeological case-studies, firstly from the Anglican perspective with: `Burial vaults and coffin furniture in the West Country' by Eric Boore (67--84); `'To the praise of the dead, and anatomie': the analysis of post-medieval burials at St Nicholas, Sevenoaks, Kent' by Angela Boyle & Graham Keevill (85--99), with two appendices (`Alphabetical list of named individuals identified' (96) and dental restorations' by Margaret Cox, Paul Kneller & Robert Haslam (97--9)); `Age at death and cause of death of the people buried in St Bride's Church, Fleet Street, London' by Louise Scheuer (100--11), with an appended list identifying individuals (110--11); `Eschatology, burial practice and continuity: a retrospection from Christ Church, Spitalfields' by Margaret Cox (112--25). Further case-studies consider one group of non-conformists: `Quaker burial: doctrine and practice' by Gwynne Stock (129--43), with `Chronology of The book of discipline' (143) appended. `The 18th and early 19th century Quaker burial ground at Bathford, Bath and North-East Somerset' by Gwynne Stock (144--53); `'In the burying place' -- the excavation of a Quaker burial ground' by Louise Bashford & Tony Pollard (154--66). `The bodies of Friends -- the osteological analysis of a Quaker burial ground' by Helen Start & Lucy Kirk (167--77). Part three looks at hazards for the archaeologist, and comprises: `Health and safety in church and funerary archaeology' by Paul Kneller (181--89); `Archaeology and smallpox' by Susan E J Young (190--6). `Bodies, minds, and human remains' by James Thompson (197--201). The concluding section considers the way forward: `Research priorities: an historian's perspective' by Vanessa Harding (203--12). `A view from the metropolis: post-medieval burials in London' by Jez Reeve (213--37), which includes an appended `Index to London cemeteries and burial-grounds (after Holmes 1896; Mellor 1985). `Advances and constraints in the study of human skeletal remains: a joint perspective' by Lynne S Bell & Julia A Lee-Thorp (238--46). `The excavation and study of human remains: a view from the floor' by Bill White (247--51). The volume closes with a `Postscript' by Margaret Cox (253).
