Winter Lecture Series #4
Chantel White, Ph.D.: Plants with a Past - Garden Archaeology

Thursday, February 22, 7 - 8 p.m.

From the temple gardens of Mesopotamia to the household gardens at Pompeii, archaeologists have uncovered exciting evidence for ancient gardens  and the plant species they once contained. Dr. Chantel White, archaeobotanist at the Penn Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology, will discuss how plant remains are preserved in garden contexts . She will discuss her work in the 1,500-year-old gardens of Istanbul, Turkey, as well as her recent archaeobotanical work in the nineteenth-century gardens of American poet Emily Dickinson located in Amherst, MA.
