Death Was in His Face: Dying, Burial and Remembrance in Early Sydney

Labour History: A Journal of Labour and Social History (1998), 74, (1), 21–39.

Abstract

This paper explores common experiences, attitudes, responses and rituals associated with dying and death among Sydney’s earliest European settlers. By looking at dying, post-mortem care, mourning, and remembrance in the context of the work of British and European thanatologists, it offers a portrait of cultural identity and affiliations, and insights into the human experiences by which the colony emerged.
