Conditie

Necropolis is a luminous; oddly beguiling account of how London has treated its dead; ranging from Roman burial rites to the horrors of the plague; from the founding of the great Victorian cemeteries to the more recent trends of collective grief and the cult of mourning; such as that surrounding the death of Princess Diana. Leaving no headstone unturned; Catherine Arnold unearths one of the great untold histories of the nation's capitol. Skillfully blending history; architecture; archaeology; and anecdote; she also explores phenomena like bodysnatching; public executions; and the rise of the undertaking trade. Ghoulishly entertaining and full of fascinating nuggets of information; Necropolis is destined to become a classic work on the city.
