A lecture by Linda Farrar, author of Ancient Roman Gardens.
This lecture discusses how literature, frescoes, mosaics and archaeology are used to provide information on Roman gardens.
The lecture will discuss how these sources reveal how gardens were designed, planted and ornamented, and help explore the various roles of the garden as a place of work, an area to relax, socialise and dine, and the ideal place to display sculpture.
