Thur 28 Mar: Roman Gardens, Evening Lecture with Cherry Hubbard, 7-8.30pm. Pliny the Elder wrote that there was a certain sanctity to a garden... In this talk Cherry explores the legacy of the Romans in our gardens, how they created peaceful spaces in the midst of their homes, how they used their plants for food, drink, decoration, medicine and dyes. We look at the primary sources, mosaics, frescos, pollen and seeds. What did they bring with them and what has survived 2000 years on? Cherry Hubbard is an engaging professional interpreter of social and domestic history with much experience in public speaking with a wide-ranging demographic. Topics ranging throughout history, but with a WW1, Tudor and Roman specialist knowledge. £7, £6 members. Booking recommended. 01285 655611.
