Saxa loquantur: Recovering America’s Latin inscriptions

On June 28, 2014, I presented a workshop entitled “Saxa loquantur : Recovering America’s Latin inscriptions” at the American Classical League Institute in Williamsburg, Virginia. I am very grateful to all who attended and participated.

The handout from the session can be downloaded using the first link below. Please note that I have removed from the handout one image which had been provided through the courtesy of the Maine Historical Society. I regret that permission to use this image did not extend to online publication.

A list of Latin phrases and abbreviations found in sepulchral inscriptions can be downloaded from the second link. I prepared this guide for a talk on the use of Latin in epitaphs, which I gave at the 2012 conference of the Association for Gravestone Studies.
