Historic Garden Styles
The purpose of this assignment is to apply the content from the reading The Garden in History by analyzing a historical site. While you are completing the virtual tour of the site you have selected, identify the elements and aspects of the site that correspond with what you have read about that particular style. You are permitted to use resources beyond the reading assigned for this week, and you may find the websites listed below to be helpful.
Put together a short (1 page) paper discussing how the site is representative of the style you read about and what you liked and did not like about this site and style. Give specific examples from the site and relate them to specific points from the reading. Be sure to identify what site you looked at and what style it is representative of.
You may chose from the following styles:
Roman domos and their courtyards
Medieval and moastery/cloister gardens of Europe
20th century modern gardens
