Description

A new book from author Chris Corlett, and published by the Heritage Office of Wicklow County Council explores the small number of stone cutters who were responsible for the majority of 18th century headstones that can be found throughout the graveyards of County Wicklow.

For most people these headstones are generally an important source of genealogical information. However, what is less well-known is just how important many of these headstones are from an art historical perspective. This book examines the evolution of headstones in the county during the 18th century and explores the religious carvings that developed during this period, as well as some of the social issues that they reflect.
