Adrian Lee is a historian, author, radio host and paranormal investigator. In his talk, the Art of the Cemetery, he will outline the history of the cemetery and its evolution–explaining their layout and conception. He will talk about the symbolism, art and semiotics of the statues and gravestones, touching upon the history and art of angels. Adrian will use his own photographs taken from cemeteries and graveyards all over the world to illustrate his talk. If you love history, angels, art, and the macabre, with an informative and funny commentary, then you will not be disappointed.  “Cemeteries are the perfect location for historical study, they remain the same, kept in a vacuum and untouched by the hammer of modernity.”
