About The Thanatos Archive

The Thanatos Archive is home to a large collection of nineteenth and early twentieth century post mortem, memorial, and mourning photography and ephemera. Many of our one-of-a-kind pieces date as far back as the early-1840s. 

The online version of our archive, online in some form since 1999, offers a searchable database of over 2000 scanned images, with new acquisitions being added on a regular basis.

The Thanatos Archive website is a 100% FREE resource, open to the public. The generous support of our friends and patrons allows us to maintain our online presence, keeping the Archive online and free, and enables us to focus more of our resources on acquiring and curating new material.

Thank you for your support!
