The Gardens Trust  - online talks on garden archaeology

Archaeology is the study of the past through its material remains, or as someone wittily put it: archaeology is rubbish. But that vital evidence on the ground is used to inform future restoration projects and conservation management plans.

The Gardens Trust are running an exciting new series of online talks exploring garden archaeology. Our distinguished and popular speakers Mark Newman, an Archaeological Consultant at the National Trust, and Stephen Wass from Polyolbion Archaeology will be reporting on current and on-going archaeology at various sites with a particular interest in the seventeenth century.

We will be discovering what garden archaeology is and how it is done, as well as looking at various sites such as the water gardens at Packwood House, Seaton Delaval, and Beningbrough Halls, and some lost wonders in Oxfordshire.

Join us for this series of five online talks which starts on Tuesday April 6th @ 10, £20 for the series, or £5 for an individual session.  The talks will all be recorded and available for a week, so that you can listen again at your leisure.
