Terms Affiliated with Monuments

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.

  • Effigy – This is a representation of a person in the form of a sculpture or some other three-dimensional form.
  • Urn – This is a vase with a top, or a container that often carries the remains of a dead man or woman. An urn may have a bronze plaque with an inscription that comments on the remains of the person within.
  • Monoliths – These are structures that are often erected to memorialize a person or for religious purposes. Stonehenge is an ancient example of a monolith.
  • Mausoleum – A mausoleum is a tomb that enshrines the remains of the dead. An example would be the Taj Mahal or one of the Great Pyramids.
