Death in England: An Illustrated History
Hardcover (no d.j.)
Peter C. Jupp (ed); Clare Gittings (ed). Charts the history of death from the earliest known humans in England to the close of the 20th century. Although there have been many important books on death concentrating on different topics & eras, this is the first time that the whole history of English (England only, not the entire British isles) death has been mapped out. The chronology of half a million years has been arranged into 10 chapters to allow each author scope to explore changes, continuities & contrasts within their individual periods. This book explores how real people’s deaths, & the arrangements made in response to them, have changed over the millennia. The strong visual record of death, often created in commemoration, provides the illustrations. Over 140 b&w plates.
