Weeping Angels – interpreting the symbolism of the Victorian cemetery

Symbols are a language that can help us understand our past. As the saying goes, “a picture paints a thousand words”: but which words? Understanding our past determines actively, our ability to understand the present. Tonight, we take a journey back in time to look at the symbolism found in Victorina cemetery’s and try to understand what messages the living left, to tell the story of their dead loved ones.

David Moore — Chairman of the Lichfield Waterworks Trust Dave Moore’s association with history began inauspiciously. He was thrown off the History CSE course at secondary school for failing to show an interest and failing to hand in any course work. His working career started with an apprenticeship in the construction industry with an upward path leading to management in the private sector. Despite his worst efforts at school, Dave has always maintained his interest in history. He travels Britain widely in pursuit of his passion for industrial heritage and social history. Early retirement allowed Dave to deepen his interests by studying public history at Ruskin college, Oxford, for which he was awarded an MA. Dave’s other skills of photography, filmmaking and information technology support his work in the public history arena.

Please note: the talk will be in the brewery and we ask people to keep in mind that it may be cold. We need to closely control the temperature to relatively low levels in the brewery but we do try to heat the place for events.
