Title How Roman garden design changed gardens forever and provided the seeds for our modern garden design
Abstract To follow.
Our Speaker After graduating in Latin and Ancient History from Exeter University, Gillian Hovell worked in BBC Television and went on to become an award-winning freelance writer, author and public speaker specialising in archaeology, ancient history (and Latin too). She then moved to North Yorkshire where practising and communicating archaeology became her new career. Her persona as the ‘Muddy Archaeologist’ sums up her hands-on enthusiasm for the subject and her zest in presenting it. Here Gillian explores what Romans did in their gardens, what they did for British horticulture and their impact on modern garden design.
