Weathering is the process by which rocks are broken down by the forces of nature.[1]

A cemetery can be an interesting place to observe weathering. The death date on the tombstone tells how old the stone is, while the appearance of the carvings gives an impression of how much weathering has occurred. A typical cemetery will include tombstones made of several different kinds of rock, so rates of weathering can be compared.
