    Works of art from antiquity to the present constitute an alternate source of information on horticultural technology and science, providing significant information on subjects such as the history of technology, crop evolution, lost traits, and crop dispersal. Using examples of Paleolithic, Egyptian, Mesopotamian, and ancient Greek paintings and sculptures, Roman mosaics, Medieval illuminated herbals, and Renaissance art in its many manifestations, Professor Jules Janick will demonstrate what can be learned from these works of art.
