Harper's, XLVII (1873) 509, circa 1865 Engraving of the 'English' Cemetery

Click on a tomb in the engraving below to find its information. The landscape is essentially unchanged though the medieval wall to the left and the Porta a' Pinti/Porta Fiesolan gate at the back, built by Arnolfo di Cambio in the thirteenth century, have since been torn down by Giuseppe Poggi. The hill itself may be an Etruscan tomb.
