Have you ever thought of a graveyard as a place of adventure, learning and discovery? Have you ever wondered about the meaning of some of the graveyard art on old tombstones? Have you ever read names and dates and wondered what kind of life the people led? If you enjoy unique experiences and want to find out more about "images of the past etched in stone" don't miss the chance to tour the Oldest English Graveyard in Canada by candlelight in Annapolis Royal at Fort Anne. 

Created in 1991 by internationally-acclaimed heritage interpreter Alan Melanson, they are consistently one of the most popular events in Nova Scotia, recommended by major media throughout the world.
