Overview


From its Native American and mission graveyards to its modern megacemeteries, San Diego County's historical landscape has an incredibly diverse array of final resting places. Cemeteries of San Diego County takes the reader in-depth to reveal the region's dynamic cultural history through dramatic modern photographs and never-before-seen vintage images of the county's most sacred spaces--its lost and forgotten historical burial grounds. A number of these graveyards have disappeared entirely, erasing

the last vestiges of too many of the region's formative pioneers. This book uncovers the location of dozens of local cemeteries and reestablishes them as consecrated grounds.

Meet the Author


Building on their previous book, Cemeteries of San Diego, which spotlighted the city's graveyards, authors David M. Caterino and Seth Mallios detail all of San Diego County's burial grounds in this volume. Caterino, an archaeologist and coordinator of the South Coastal Information Center, and Mallios, professor and chair of the anthropology department at San Diego State University, have pinpointed many lost cemeteries as part of the San Diego Gravestone Project. Their ongoing work in local graveyards endeavors to preserve local history and reconnect present San Diegans with the past.
