Edinburgh historic graveyards( World Monuments Fund )
Economist Adam Smith, poet Robert Fergusson and philosopher David Hume are among those buried in the five historic burial grounds in Edinburgh recognized by the World Monument Fund. Greyfriars Kirkyard, Canongate Kirkyard, St. Cuthbert's Kirkyard, Old Calton Burial Ground and New Calton Burial Ground keep the remains of citizens who saw Edinburgh transform from a medieval town to one of the major centers of the Enlightenment.
