Event description

Description

Victorians had a different attitude about death than we do in the 21st Century.

Ø People died at home surrounded by loved ones, families picnicked in cemeteries on Sundays, took photos with deceased (what’s up with that?) & made jewelry from their hair (yes, really!).

Ø They also worried about being buried alive or someone stealing their bodies.

Ø This program explores the Victorians’ fascination with death & the culture they developed to memorialize the dead.
