Description
A charming reprint of a classic British nature book, originally published in 1976, by renowned historian and ecologist Oliver Rackham (1939-2015). Considered by many to be the best survey of its kind, the insightful text weaves the history of Britain’s woodland from the wildwoods of prehistory, the impact of developing agriculture with the Romans and increasing management of wooded landscapes in the medieval age. This book sees trees as individuals and as part of a changing landscape. The thought-provoking history charts the evolving character and role of trees, from sources of timber to wooded commons, hedgerows and parkland. With a fieldwork-driven eye, the book is illustrated with black-and-white diagrams, maps and photographs and, writing in the 1970s, anticipates many of the issues of conservation and land management still pertinent today.
