The influence of religion pays a huge part of
the way these tombs are made. Ruth states "It takes
seven people to make up a religion" The power that religions
have on the symbolism that are displayed on these tombs. Religion
ruled this time period which is why there is so much displayed 
on these grave sites

During this period is when the slaves where being taken from Africa to the States. Ruth says " By 1710 there were more slaves than Europeans" But their graves were never found. The mystery is where did the bury them? Did they bury them? No one will know where they are or what the Europeans did with them .
