Hooray! All is not lost in the UK for anyone wanting to study Garden History academically despite the closure of excellent courses such as that at Birkbeck, University of London. Now the University of Buckingham is launching an MA in Garden History:
It's to be based in London and the course director is Professor Timothy Mowl. He is best known for his work on William Kent and male professional landscape gardeners (see his book, Gentleman & Players: Gardeners of the English Landscape). The course will feature guest lecturers who next year will include Sir Roy Strong and Anna Pavord.
