15th Century

This map claims to represent the city as it was in 1547. It was produced by lithographers Robert Gardner & Co in 1894.

Provand's Lordship dates from the latter part of the 15th Century.

This period is seen as being a transitional phase between the Medieval and Renaissance periods.

The garden has been designed to reflect the gradual shift in emphasis from the medicinal and culinary to the decorative and formal. And to mirror the philosophical changes which were occurring during this period.

The latter part of the 15th century was also the time when the University of Glasgow​ was founded at the opposite end of the High Street.

Other neighbours were the Bishop's Castle and the Cathedral.
