Event description

Description

Garden history encapsulates a fascinating amalgam of art, architectural, landscape, social, literary and horticultural history as well as archaeology and the evolution of garden design.  We're working with the Birkbeck Garden History Group (BGHG) who want to encourage the study of garden history by introducing the subject to people who have not been involved in it previously, although they may have an interest in one or more of the disciplines mentioned above.

Following the success of our ‘taster’ study days BGHG are now supporting  new 6 week introductory courses at the Institute of Historical Research in Bloomsbury, which is the world’s leading centre for research into all aspects of History, and runs the country’s only MA course in Garden History.

The course tutors will be Letta Jones, M.A. & Stephen Smith, M.A.

Classes will be small [max size 16] with lively illustrated lectures, opportunities for discussion and further personal reading & research suggestions if you wish. We often have a waiting list for places so if you book a place but are unable to use it for any reason, then email us and  we will try and resell it if we can. In that case we will be happy to refund your payment less Eventbrite's fees, otherwise we regret we cannot offer a refund.
