John Keat's tombstone. He died on 23 February 1821 and was buried in the Protestant cemetery, Rome, Italy. His last request was to be buried under a tombstone, without his name. On his grave is written: This Grave contains all that was Mortal, of a Young English Poet, Who, on his Death Bed, in the Bitterness of his Heart, at the Malicious Power of his Enemies, Desired these Words to be engraven on his Tomb Stone: Here lies One Whose Name was writ in Water. ~ 24 February 1821

Skull and Crossbones with Sands of Time Symbols of mortality and Viking runes are powerfully carved in this 17th century Scottish grave slab. Dedicated to a member of the Campbell and Roy clans. These symbols also have a relationship to the Knights Templar and the early Masonic order and are found in many old graveyards in Scotland.
