Famous GraveyardsBook - 2015
Horror movies are filmed in Highgate Cemetery in London, England. The oldest headstones at the Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague, Czech Republic, are from the 1400s. In Cairo's City of the Dead, the poorest citizens live next door to graves! While visiting these graveyards isn't for the faint of heart, readers can enjoy all the spooky spectacles through detailed descriptions and history. Full-color photographs show the different ways cultures have buried their dead, from the beauty of Zentralfriedhof in Vienna to the restrained dignity of Arlington National Cemetery. Sidebars augment the main content with haunted tales and the famous people buried there.
