Product Description:

Though most of us will have enjoyed strolling through beautiful British woodlands we might not be aware of the ancient - and often complex - origins of our surroundings. From medieval times woodlands were carefully managed commodities with hotly contested resources: conflicting demands from landowners the Crown the peasantry and local and national wood-based industries have all left their marks on today's woodland. Ian D. Rotherham here explains the various uses of British woods and their industries such as coppicing charcoal-burning basket-making and bodging and helps the reader to seek out the clues to their woodland's past.
