We are all familiar with the Museum Gardens. The history of the land before the Yorkshire Philosophical Society came on the scene can be pieced together from the surviving remains - St Mary's Abbey, the Multangular Tower - and historical sources: a patch of non-descript land outside a legionary fortress was shaped by the Romans, Earl Siward, William Rufus, the Benedictines, and Henry VIII, among others, until it eventually became available for the Society to create their own botanic garden.
