Kathy Wilson presents Death Comes for Us All: Death and Mourning in the Victorian Era
Thursday, May 23
Victorians had a much different view of death than we do. People died at home surrounded by loved ones, and families picnicked in cemeteries on Sundays, took photos with the deceased, and made jewelry from their hair. They also worried about being buried alive, or having their remains stolen. Join Iowa historian Kathy Wilson for a fun and fascinating look at the customs of another era regarding one of life's certainties.
