The Victorians dealt with death on a grand scale. Their sprawling cities of the departed at Highgate, Abney Park and Kensal Green are fascinating repositories of the great and the good of their day. Catharine Arnold draws on archaeology, anthropology, anecdote and history to take you on a virtual tour of London's finest cemeteries whilst providing a vivid account of the Victorian attitude to death and mourning.
Catharine Arnold is the author of the popular London quartet, comprising of Necropolis: London and its Dead, Bedlam: London and its Mad, City of Sin: London and its Vices and Underworld London: Crime and Punishment in the Capital City.
