Grave Encounters: Hudson Valley Headstone Design- VIRTUAL EVENT

June 28, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Grave Encounters: Hudson Valley Headstone Design
Sunday, June 28, at 2 pm

Join us for our virtual program, Grave Encounters: Hudson Valley Headstone Design with researcher Marisa Hayes! Ms.Hayes will present some of her research on headstone design in the Hudson Valley historic cemeteries, focusing on headstone styles from the Colonial Period through the Civil War. Headstones reflect the social identities and views of death held by historical peoples of the Hudson Valley. Ms. Hayes compares Hudson Valley headstone patterns to the gravestone studies of
Archaeologist James Deetz in New England, and discovers patterns that reveal culture, language, and heritage of the people who are buried in the Hudson Valley’s oldest cemeteries.
