The purpose of this volume is to summarise the present state of Garden Archaeology and to take note of the way in which it had developed so rapidly in recent years. Hence the contributions on field survey linked with documentary work (nos 2 and 4), aerial photography (3) and garden buildings (11), which might be said to represent the original, fieldwork orientated, approach to the subject: but to which must now be added excavation, particularly as an aid to restoration, both in town and country, and work on environmental remains (nos 5, 7, and 8). The contributions also attempt to go beyond the enumeration of techniques and to look at changing philosophies in the archaeological approach to the study of gardens. Hence one of the field survey papers was in part at least an attempt to stand back from the details of individual surveys and attempt to consider the value of the rapidly increasing body of survey information as a whole (no 2). In the paper on parks (10), the benefit of collaborative understanding between field archaeology and botanists is shown. This volume benefits from the inclusion of some specially commissioned papers. The section on excavation has been expanded to include an account of recent important work at Kirby Hall, Northamptonshire (6). The role of ceramics in medieval garden management has been considered (9). Papers have been included on gardens in Scotland and Wales (12, 13, and 14) (also introducing new themes, 19th century ornamental landscapes and kitchen gardens, for example), as well as on the statutory background of the preservation of old gardens (6).
