Paradise gardens of the Middle East and Anglo-Saxon hayes were the origins of medieval deer parks, where considerations of aesthetics were important long before the advent of the 17th century designers. Dr Fletcher will discuss these aspects of deer parks as well as their management through the ages and more recent theories about the capture and handling of deer stock.
His book, Gardens of Earthly Delight — the History of Deer Parks, is being published in March 2011
