Despite urban expansion and changes in agriculture, fields are still the most characteristic feature of the English landscape. But why are fields the size and shape they are, and how can you tell a Saxon one from a medieval one? This book is a chronological history of the field and of landscape evolution. As far as possible, Christopher Taylor has used evidence of what remains today and interprets this with the help of archaeological discoveries, documentary evidence and the observations of his own fieldwork. He aims to make the reader familiar with the historical evolution of the English landscape through its fields, paddocks, water-meadows, terraces, and ridge-and-furrow patterns.

Charles Bridgeman was a key figure in the establishment of le jardin anglais, that remarkable English invention which was to sweep 18th century Europe. Bridgeman's role in the transition from the geometric layouts of the early 1700s to the freer designs of Capability Brown was a crucial one. His activities as Royal Gardener to George II and Queen Caroline embraced Hampton Court, Kensinton Gardens, Hyde Park and Richmond, while for private patrons he was active at Claremont, Eastbury, Wimpole, Marble Hill and a host of other country houses.

Over 100 illustrations accompany writings that rangefrom Francis Bacon to Jane Austin; from the early 1600s, when Englishmen began to determine theirown concept and form of the garden, through the first half of the eighteenth century when itsdistinctive feature emerged, to the heyday of the landscape garden under "Capability" Brown and thereactions to his pure formalism under Repton and Loudon in the 1800s. This edition contains a newintroduction and bibliography covering the many developments in garden history during the last dozenyears.John Dixon Hunt is Professor in the School of English and American Studies at the Universityof East Anglia and editor of the International Journal of Garden History.
