You know by now that we at FPAN Northeast are suckers for a good cemetery.  We love them as outdoor museums, as archaeological sites worth preserving, and simply as places of remembrance.  We've posted plenty about cemeteries over the last few years.

Now it's your turn!  Our Halloween challenge to you, dear readers, is to visit your favorite cemetery and take a few pictures.  Find your favorite grave marker, or the oldest one, or just the oddest one, and send us a photo, and we'll send you a treat!









Three lucky winners will be chosen at random to receive a book on historic cemeteries (from those shown) and a snazzy little bag, pictured below.




























Get out and explore, then submit your photos to northeast@flpublicarchaeology.org, along with your name, mailing address, name and location of the cemetery, and anything else you'd like to share about your visit.  The drawing will take place on November 5th, so get out and get those pictures to us!  And if you come up with any spooky stories or creepy encounters along the way, please pass them along.
