Join Events and Outreach Coordinator, Corinne Elicona for a virtual Mount Auburn expedition to learn all about the different flowers and plants found in Victorian gravestone symbolism. We’ll explore the hidden meanings behind these botanic carvings and dive deep into the complex language that is Victorian sentimental symbolism.
