A monument is any building or megalith surviving a past age that is regarded as having historical and social importance. They are often erected in memory of a person or event. These can take shape as a grave, memorial, or even head stone. Monuments may range from great marble busts or bronze statues to tomb stones and plaques. Universities may have markers or plaques to commemorate historical events that took place, like Kent state has a memorial and inscription describing what happened at the state university in 1970, with a photo. A cemetery may commemorate the past or honor great men and women that have passed on. There are plenty of terms that can inform an individual about monuments.
