Ossuaries are resting places for skeletal remains that have been relocated from temporary grave sites. This was an ancient funereal practice in Europe and parts of Asia to save space in graveyards and tombs. The largest ossuary in the world is the Catacombs of Paris, France, which holds the skeletal remains of over six million people dating from the 1700s.
The design of this pin is based on the ossuary skulls of St Leonard's Church in Hythe, Kent, England.
