Abstract

Details of the east-leaning transect for site sampling in the study spanning England and Scotland are provided in this chapter, detailing the methods deployed in the research. This includes an outline of site and field methods used at the six locations and 13 sites comprised in this study. Outputs for the study are also relayed, entailing digital photographs of each upright headstone and location maps at a scale of 1:500. A database of information has been developed through various site visits since 2006. Inferential statistics are used to define the correlation of headstone dimensions with age at death or year of death.
