> South Indian Cemeteries
Large numbers of records in this section have been supplied by Martin Krieger of the University of Greifswald in Germany and barry Lewis.
Martin Krieger is studying the architecture and sculpture of European gravestones in Southern India and has most graciously agreed to transcribe and photograph many details for FIBIS.
The significant numbers of photographs are an additional resource available to researchers and frequently include legible details of their inscriptions.
Note: References are included to other publications which give details of the more ancient gravestones. Foremost among these is Cotton. This relates to: List of Inscriptions on Tombs or Monuments in Madras possessing Historical of Archaeological Interest by Julian James Cotton, C.S. Government Press, Madras, 1905.
Barry Lewis is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he also completed his Ph.D. in 1979. His current research centers on the archaeology and history of South India between roughly AD 1500-1850, with particular emphasis on the former princely state of Mysore.
