HIST 300: Introduction to Historical Method

HIST 300-005: Dead in Virginia
(Spring 2013)

01:30 PM to 04:15 PM W

Section Information for Spring 2013

This course is focused on the history of Northern Virginia as told through the hundreds of family and other small cemeteries that dot the local landscape. Because they are sites of memory, these cemeteries are historic sites that can tell us much about the history of the communities where we live and work. This course will require some time away from campus, but does not require that you own a car. However, it does require you to do such things as get your hands and knees dirty, to spend time in the archives, and to learn the basics of digital databases.
