Anglo Saxon Gardens at the Time of the Norman Conquest

Anglo-Saxons encountered incredible changes to their day-to-day lives in the latter half of the eleventh century due to the accession of the Normans. The ability of the Normans surpassed the Anglo-Saxons' in design and agriculture at the time of the conquest. However, there was no time for home life, domestic architecture, and adornment until the Normans had conquered the whole region. Because of this, castles were cruder structures than monasteries: Monasteries were usually immense stone buildings set in the biggest and most fertile valleys, while castles were built on windy crests where their inhabitants dedicated time and space to projects for offense and defense. Tranquil activities such as gardening were out of place in these desolate citadels. The best example of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture existent presently is Berkeley Castle. The keep is said to date from the time of William the Conqueror. An enormous terrace encompasses the building, serving as an obstacle to attackers wanting to excavate under the castle walls. A picturesque bowling green, covered in grass and surrounded by battlements cut out of an ancient yew hedge, creates one of the terraces.

At What Point Did Water Fountains Emerge?

Himself a highly educated man, Pope Nicholas V led the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 till 1455 and was responsible for the translation of hundreds of age-old documents from their original Greek into Latin. In order to make Rome worthy of being the capital of the Christian world, the Pope resolved to enhance the beauty of the city.Point Water Fountains Emerge? 9341409495129.jpg In 1453 the Pope commissioned the repairing of the Aqua Vergine, an historic Roman aqueduct which had carried fresh drinking water into the city from eight miles away. The historical Roman tradition of marking the entry point of an aqueduct with an imposing celebratory fountain, also known as a mostra, was restored by Nicholas V. The architect Leon Battista Alberti was commissioned by the Pope to construct a wall fountain where we now see the Trevi Fountain. The water which eventually furnished the Trevi Fountain as well as the acclaimed baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona flowed from the modified aqueduct which he had renovated.
