Robert Burns

Burns Mausoleum, Dumfries

Period:
19th Century
Description:
In the years following his death, Robert Burns' admirers came to believe that his simple grave was an insufficient memorial to the poet. In 1813, John Syme formed a committee and launched an appeal to build a mausoleum in his memory. One of the subscribers was the Prince Regent, later George IV. This mausoleum was the result.
