The subject of garden history links a considerable number of disciplines. Its obvious associations with the world of art and architectural history join subjects such as geography and social, scientific and economic histories making up a rich and varied area of study. This wide range of subjects, focussing on the creation and management of great gardens, provides a fascinating platform from which to discover the progress of civilisation and taste over the centuries. This ten‐week introductory course will focus largely on British gardens following the chronological development of gardens from Ancient Rome to the twentieth‐century.
