Reviews
"Excellent. . . . Essential reading for anyone interested in Western maritime culture."--Journal of Anthropological Research "Stewart adroitly employs gravestones and memorials as material culture to reconstruct the maritime cultures of England and Anglo-America during the Age of Sail."--American Antiquity "An important book. . . . Brings together historical archaeology, folklore (to some extent still active) and the important reminder that maritime life included the feelings and activities of the shore-based family and relatives."--International Journal of Nautical Archaeology "Offers some remarkable and valuable insights into a seldom-explored area of maritime custom and belief."--International Journal of Maritime History "A pioneering study. . . . Convincingly demonstrates the centrality of death to maritime culture."--Winterthur Portfolio "Delves into the symbolism of both imagery and the words chosen to remember the dead. . . . A unique study of an overlooked facet of maritime life."--Sea History "A very welcome pioneering study in the little-explored field of maritime memorials."--Church Monuments
