London, England

Bunhill Fields Burial Ground:  Because of its antiquity and the many famous people buried here, Bunhill Fields may be London's most well known cemetery. The last known burial took place in 1860: seems like over 200 years of entombment had filled the place up! Those interred here had one thing in common: They were non-conformists like Methodists, Baptists, and Congregationalists. Perhaps that tendency to think outside the box is the reason we can find here at least three foundation stones of British literature: Bunyan, De-Foe, and Blake. [2015]
