Although preservation of the remains was poor, information on interment practices, coffin types, burial goods, and health was recovered. Analysis of the Quaker Burying Ground data and comparisons with other historical cemetery excavations suggest that Alexandria's Quaker community largely rejected the ostentatious burial rituals, known as the "beautification of death" movement, of the dominant culture
