Table Stone Gravestones

These are large horizontal gravestones supported above ground which provide space for long inscriptions. They generally were used for prominent citizens. Some were installed as memorials many years after the death. These memorials sometimes cover the original gravestone. The horizontal position results in surface erosion making the stones difficult to read.
