DEPOPULATION. Churches in fields: ruins, depopulation

Old church ruin, pasture, Ireland

Ruins of past lives. See many ruined homesteads, churches, abandoned settlements. 

A church in a field with the flock outside, not inside.

Look at the depopulation figures from 1849-1901, at ://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?_r=1&res=9C05E5D61F38E733A2575AC2A9609C946097D6CF/  From eight million souls to three million in that time, roughly.
