      A fascinating insight into the Glasgow Necropolis, designed in the Victorian age as the place to be seen dead. At the time when Glasgow was the second city of the Empire, it created a new way of seeing death and memorialisation, with the people who commissioned houses, factories and great buildings also commissioning tombstones. Ronnie Scott wrote a PhD on the Necropolis, but this is no dreary academic read - it's the liveliest book on a cemetery that you could find.
