    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

    [​IMG]

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

    [​IMG]

    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.

    [​IMG]

    Another sacrifice site... although I think it was for animals :eek1

    [​IMG]

    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 :puke1

    Shitty shot, but one of the biggest cemeteries in Hong Kong

    There's another old cemetery thread floating around here somewhere...

    I think this one was in Vermont.

    Picketwire Canyon in Colorado. This location is still very remote.

    Downtown Tallahassee.

    My great-uncle, J.W. Barron, was a genuine Colorado pioneer. He was buried in 1902 without a headstone, a situation I rectified this summer.

    The Flat Lick Baptist Cemetery, Somerset, KY, our family plot.

    Williamsburg, VA.

    I'll stop here, but I could go on.
    This was anything but a battle ground, where over 200 Cheyenne and Arapahoe were slaughtered, most of them women and children.

    Some great pics on here. Here is one from Mare Island right by my house, former Naval shipyard now shut down and pretty much abandoned. Could not get the bike in there as it is walking only -

    Some great photos there. Here's a few more from Timor-Leste

    A memorial up in the mountains, commemorating the massacre of a large number of Timorese and some Portuguese by the Japanese at Alieu in 1942

    [​IMG]

    One of the Portuguese graves there

    Another memorial to the Martyrs, in the mountains of Timor-Leste. Over 250,000 died resisting the Indonesian invasion and occupation for 25 years from 1975

    [​IMG]

    A memorial in front of the church in Suai. The Indonesian-supported militia massacred up to 200 people in the church in Sept '99. Many of the people attending the service when I was staying there were widows, children etc of those massacred. Those killed included the priests

    [​IMG]

    A newish cemetery (sorry) but this one is for heroes of the Timorese people... freedom fighters

    [​IMG]

    Not so much a grave, but a memento. The car that the monk, Thích Quảng Đức, drove into town in Hue in 1963, in order to commit self-immolation during the American War in Vietnam
