The Indian Mutiny had a colossal impact on all aspects of British rule in India. This paper explores the manner in which two major incidents, the sieges of Lucknow and Cawnpore (now Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh), were commemorated through the construction of memorials. The memorials produced highly charged symbolic landscapes, by bracketing areas of space within the urban landscape, marking them as locations of importance to the resident European populations. These monuments became embedded into a wider landscape of remembrance that developed across India in the years following the Mutiny. It can be seen that the strategies used for memorialising the dead reflected existing Victorian pre-conceptions about class and gender. It is demonstrated that the process of remembering the uprising was not a single event, but an on-going process of re-inscribing the events, both in print and in bricks and mortar. Finally the way in which images of the commemorative landscapes were disseminated through prints and postcards is explored.
