Why is black a color for mourning? Why are mirrors covered when one passes away? How long did someone wear mourning attire? How did mourning practices change over the centuries? Learn this and more during the month of October at Rippon Lodge, as we dress the historic house in various periods of mourning. Guided tours of this special look at how death was commemorated and celebrated over the centuries are on the hour.
