Earth to Earth: A Natural History of Churchyards

Earth to Earth: A Natural History of Churchyards

Stephan Buczacki

From the earliest pagan sites to modern urban cemeteries, burial grounds have always enjoyed a sacred, protected status in the history of society. Consequently they have become tranquil oases in which wildlife can flourish - a microcosm of the natural habitat long since disappeared from the surrounding area.

In Earth to Earth, Professor Stefan Buczacki uncovers the wild animals and plants that thrive amongst the headstones, from the graveyard beetle to the mighty yew. He also explores the history of churchyards and the landscape, as well as what can be done to conserve them for future generations. Accompanied by specially commissioned illustrations by Felicity Price-Smith and selected quotations, this beautiful gift book reveals the natural secrets to be found in God's Acre. 160 pages.
