Abstract:

"Strangstad's A Graveyard Perservation Primer" set the standard for the field of cemetery studies twenty-five years ago. Her information about conservation techniques was essential for those of us who sought guidance in this new discipline. This second edition of the Primer provides material regarding preservation technologies that have been recently introduced and also addresses the myriad new methods of documentation of historic burial sites. The development of GPS, computer programs, and digital photography have all advanced the accuracy and efficiency of survey and recordation -- and, as usual, Strangstad leads the way in telling how to do it."--Sharyn Thompson, The Center for Historic Cemeteries Preservation.
