Gardens and Green Spaces in the West Midlands since 1700 book launch
Join us to celebrate the inaugural publication from our new West Midlands Publications imprint.
Garden history is more than the study of individuals such as ‘Capability Brown’ who created estates for a wealthy élite.
A new approach, which includes insights from geology and archaeology, the perspectives of social class and gender, the history of art and architecture, science, technology and literature, is changing our perspective so that we can see gardens and gardening within wider social, economic, political and cultural contexts.
Come and join us at te University of Birmingham for a special event to launch this major new study. There will be a chance to meet the editors and some of the contributors and also to learn more about the Green Heart project.
