Thanks to historical and cultural integrity, the graveyards in Samogitia constitute coherent historical and cultural sphere. For this reason, they can be regarded as broadly understood historical buildings. Such places belonged to the heritage of Lithuanian and Polish nations. The article contains detailed issues such as: the arrangement of historical graveyards on Samogitia land, the location of the graveyards, the characteristics and description of graves, their typology and esthetics, surnames, professional and social status of the buried people, inscriptions on tombstones. The paper also presents the condition of graves and graveyards and essential conservations. The article was based on the field research carried out between 2006-2013.
