Article on historic ‘pet’ cemeteries
In this article in the book Animal Death I discuss the 3 oldest ‘pet’ cemeteries in their respective countries: Hyde Park, London, Hartsdale outside New York and the Cimitere des Chiens in Asnieres-sur-Seine in Paris. I consider the ways in which human and animal space is blurred in such localities. I also discuss both some of the continuities as well as changes in the human – animal relationship as depicted on gravestones.
