Description
Illustrated with archaeological drawings, photos, and color reproductions of paintings, tapestries, and mosaics, this book looks at how the cultivation of gardens played an integral role in the public, private, and economic spheres of the ancient world. Archaeologist Maureen Carroll examines written histories, art, and physical evidence of gardens from the 2nd millennium BC to about 500 AD to explore house gardens, orchards and parks, sacred gardens, and cemetery gardens. Here too is a section on gardens in ancient poetry, while the final chapter looks at the survival of ancient gardening practices in the Islamic and Byzantine worlds today, and how they reflect the concept of "paradise" in those cultures.
