The author takes an historical and interpretative approach to Scotland's graveyards. She examines their past and points out the features in them that reflect it; she guides the reader among the stones explaining early symbolic carvings and analysing the changing fashions in sculpture and inscription. Her purpose is not only to inspire in reader a fresh appreciation of the local graveyard but also to alert them to the urgent need for further graveyard recording and conservation. Clear and accessible, the book reflects the author's long experience of recording Scottish kirkyard memorials.
