Explore the cemeteries and crematoria of Glasgow

This course consists of five online presentations offering virtual "guided walks" through the city’s impressive range of last resting places, and highlights the rich variety of material culture of death and remembrance on display. We will discuss the landscape, architecture and iconography of Glasgow’s cemeteries and crematoria, and explain how they reflect changing social, religious and cultural attitudes. The five locations are: Glasgow Necropolis; Cathcart Cemetery (including Jewish and Muslim sections); Western Necropolis and Glasgow Crematorium; Sighthill Cemetery; and Eastern Necropolis. Maps and notes will be provided for students who want to make their own visits to the five locations.
