About this book

Forests and chases were bounded areas where a legal regime separate from the Common Law protected royal and aristocratic hunting priveleges and commoners' rights. Their survival and their history after the Middle Ages is little recorded, yet forest law and customs continued into Victoria's reign, and some still do. In this volume, historians, geographers, ecologists, archaeologists and environmental managers investigate the survival of forests and how they may best be managed in today's world.
