Anglo Saxon Gardens at the Time of the Norman Conquest

Anglo Saxon Gardens at the Time of the Norman Conquest The introduction of the Normans in the second half of the 11th century irreparably improved The Anglo-Saxon lifestyle. The Normans were better than the Anglo-Saxons at architecture and horticulture when they came into power. But before concentrating on home-life or having the occasion to contemplate domestic architecture or decoration, the Normans had to subjugate an entire population.Anglo Saxon Gardens  Time Norman Conquest 29654930539504541.jpg Castles were more standard designs and often constructed on blustery hills, where their tenants spent both time and space to exercising offense and defense, while monasteries were considerable stone buildings, mostly situated in the widest, most fruitful hollows. Gardening, a peaceful occupation, was unfeasible in these fruitless fortifications. The early Anglo-Norman style of architecture is portrayed in Berkeley Castle, which is perhaps the most untouched example we have. It is said that the keep was introduced during William the Conqueror's time. An enormous terrace encompasses the building, serving as an obstacle to assailants trying to excavate under the castle walls. One of these terraces, a charming bowling green, is covered grass and flanked by an aged yew hedge cut into the form of crude battlements.

"Primitive" Greek Art: Garden Statuary

"Primitive" Greek Art: Garden Statuary Archaic Greeks were renowned for developing the first freestanding statuary; up until then, most carvings were made out of walls and pillars as reliefs. Most of these freestanding sculptures were what is known as kouros figures, statues of young, attractive male or female (kore) Greeks. Symbolizing beauty to the Greeks, the kouroi were created to appear stiff and typically had foot in front; the males were healthy, powerful, and naked. Around 650 BC, life-size versions of the kouroi began to be observed. The Archaic period was an amazing point of change for the Greeks as they expanded into new modes of government, created fresh expressions of art, and gained insights of the men and women and cultures outside of Greece. Nonetheless, the Greek civilization was not slowed down by these battles.

The Dissemination of Outdoor Fountain Design Innovation

The Dissemination of Outdoor Fountain Design Innovation Instrumental to the development of scientific technology were the published papers and illustrated publications of the day. They were also the primary method of transmitting useful hydraulic ideas and fountain design suggestions all through Europe.Dissemination Outdoor Fountain Design Innovation 05103166749710462518.jpg An un-named French water feature designer was an internationally celebrated hydraulic leader in the later part of the 1500's. His experience in designing gardens and grottoes with integrated and imaginative water attributes began in Italy and with mandates in Brussels, London and Germany. The text, “The Principles of Moving Forces,” written towards the end of his life in France, turned out to be the definitive text on hydraulic mechanics and engineering. The book updated key hydraulic breakthroughs since classical antiquity as well as explaining modern day hydraulic technologies. Notable among these works were those of Archimedes, the developer of the water screw, a mechanical means of transferring water. A pair of undetectable vessels warmed by sunlight in an space next to the decorative water feature were found in an illustration.
