Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown: A Research Impact Review: Prepared for English Heritage by the Landscape Group, University of East Anglia

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This review is intended to examine the principal research carried out into Brown and his works over the last few decades, and to identify some of the principal gaps in our knowledge as we approach the tercentenary of his birth. This is based on a survey of the published secondary literature on Brown, and addresses the problem of the so-called ‘grey’ literature. The review and its findings were discussed at a multi-disciplinary workshop held at the University of East Anglia in May 2013, in part to peer review thework presented here, and in part to stimulate discussion for future research on Brown.
