Potter's Field

Potter's field is the name for indigent graveyards- the burial sites for then called paupers, people with no family to care for their dead.  Link to a great article. No need for me to reinvent the wheel. Sorry for the small photo, but I think it accurately depicts the state of many of these old burial sites.

  3. I don't know exactly how I feel about the kids playing kickball with skulls, but I DO know I liked that illustration of the coffin-unloading. Thanks, that was interesting.
