Tour Scotland Photograph Gravestone Abdie Kirkyard Fife

Tour Scotland photograph of a gravestone in the Kirkyard cemetery in Abdie, North Fife, Scotland. You can see some of the old Scottish agricultural implements on this old gravestone. By the middle of the 17th century in Scotland, we begin to see more identification marks on the stones. Heraldic devices, craft tools, symbols of mortality and the name, date of birth and often the address of the deceased began to be crammed onto the limited surfaces of the stone.
