Cove Burying Ground

By CMS in Heritage

Norman Hammond has sent us a link to this splendid report on the survey and study of an early New England burial ground –

The web site gives a well-researched overview of early settlement in New England (the ‘Pilgrim Fathers’- though (a) the group included women and children and (b) as the study makes clear, they weren’t called ‘Pilgrim Fathers’ until the 19th century). The main body of the article details a ground-penetrating radar survey and analysis of the Cove burial ground and its monuments, set in the context of early New England monumental sculpture.
