Garden History

The course combines original research with training in the methods, materials and approaches garden history involves. Lectures and seminars provides a thorough preparation in research techniques and a sound overview of the history of British gardens and designed landscapes from the 16th century to the modern period. In the autumn term (October to December) there are eight intensive one-day sessions in which research training and historical background seminars are led by specialist tutors covering key aspects of the subject. There is a residential weekend at the start of the course for visiting major masterpieces of landscape design to introduce students to practices involved in reading physical evidence. There are further study days in the field during the winter and spring terms where students will put into practice the skills they have learnt on the course through close site investigation of gardens and landscapes. In addition, there are two evening research seminars.
