Garden History in 10 Objects with David Marsh
Discover centuries of garden history in an afternoon.
This provides an interactive review and introduction to garden history. The session begins with a fun hands-on investigation of some garden-related objects. Some you’ll know but might not realise their history or significance, others you definitely won’t, but they should all get you thinking and talking.
This will be followed by a lively illustrated lecture that puts the objects into a broad chronological and social context with ideas of what you can do next.
The afternoon is suitable for everyone, whether an experienced researcher or a complete newcomer to the subject- so why not bring along someone you think might be interested in knowing more? It provides a perfect introduction for our garden history course in the autumn, or as a stand-alone session.
