My study is entitled, From Winchester Geese to Crow’s Goose; Towards a Biography of The Cross Bones Graveyard.

Purpose of Project

In order to explore the biography of Crossbones, I need to examine the role of it within the community.

Crossbones is one of the only burial sites in Southwark, from the period it was an active burial site that has not been fully exhumed or developed.

Part of my research is understanding what Crossbones means to people, those that visit it and those that continue to support and protect it.

This is what makes your participation in this study so important.
