Professor Tom Williamson, University of East Anglia will discuss the preliminary findings of a research project on the history of orchards at his university. .........

 

Orchards have formed an important part of our culture for centuries, but investigations of their history are hampered by persistent myths concerning the age of particular examples, and about the antiquity of the fruit varieties they contain. These issues are currently being addressed by a research project based at the University of East Anglia in Norwich. This talk will discuss the history of different kinds of orchard – farmhouse, institutional, commercial, and those which, in various periods, have formed elements in designed landscapes. It will also explore a range of related issues, including the age and origins of ‘traditional’ fruit varieties.
