We stopped by this historic cemetery Sunday. Union Mission Cemetery, Oklahoma, 1822-1825. Most of the graves were infants.

This one is above ground burial... in a remote village in Flores, eastern Indonesia. The casket on the left contains the bones of my friend's grandfather, who was the chief of 23 villages.... with a wife to keep his bed warm in each village. One of the other two was the village hero, who saved it from an attack by enemies



Same "cemetery" from a bit further back



Sacrifice stones for ritual killings, rather than a cemetery as such, but the vertical stones are monuments



Does a really, really old cemetery count? This is the dig cave where Homo Floresiensis was found. Aka Hobbit Man... an extinct species of the Homo genus that stood about three and a half feet tall... fully grown.



Another sacrifice site... although I think it was for animals



But the sacrifice stone tables were pretty big



A cemetery in Timor-Leste. Pick the freedom fighter graves



A memorial to the freedom fighters

Those ones from Indonesia are brilliant. When I was a kid growing up in Singapore I came across a skull in a jar on the beach once.

I love cemeteries. These are taken with a handful of different cameras, digital and analogue. Keeping the pictures small as there's lots
