Heritage and Historical Archaeology Field Course at Emanu-El Cemetery
This year, we will be at the cemetery on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from May 8 -June 7.
This website aims to share our explorations, studies, and projects with the wider community. As a side note: our work is non-destructive. We are in the cemetery to record and map only – there will be no excavation. We are working with Dr Richard Kool, Director of the cemetery and Rabbi Harry Brechner.
There are other two other sites associated with this project. The first is Taylor Peacock’s blog, in which she documented her archive-based search for the people who are listed as buried in the cemetery, but for whom we have no gravestone. The second is Melanie Heizer’s Picturing Cemeteries, which emerged from her JCURA project looking at RTI and Photogrammetry.
(Please note: this course formerly ran under the number ANTH395)
