Annual History Lecture 2018 – History Week 2018

Warning from the grave: Death, glory and memory in Australian cemeteries

On 4 September 2018, Dr Lisa Murray (City Historian, City of Sydney) delivered the History Council of NSW’s Annual History Lecture as part of History Week. Cemeteries preserve our history and form part of our national heritage. But to truly understand the Australian way of death we must consider the social and economic history of funeral practices.  This was recorded by the ABC’s Big Ideas program and broadcast nationally on 21 November 2018.
