Garden and Herbal History Research Seminar
Wednesday 26 June 2013, 10.30 am–4.30 pm
Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution,
16–18 Queen Square, Bath BA1 2HN, UK

Herbs, as useful plants, have featured strongly in gardens throughout the ages, but there has been relatively limited research which has closely examined the relationship between people and medicinal plants in the garden context. The aim of this day seminar is to bring together current and interested researchers to explore issues of interest in both garden and herbal historical research, especially those related to finding and interpreting archival and other sources. Speakers have been invited to contribute reports on their progress in current and recent projects and to share ideas and problems.

Advance registration is essential as space is limited. The cost of this seminar is £48 (£28 for students). Early bird registration before 24th April 2013 is discounted by £6 per place to £42 (£22).
