Long accepted as the best work on the subject since its initial publication in 1976, this reprint of Oliver Rackham’s book is both a comprehensive history of Britain’s woodland and a field-work guide that presents trees individually and as part of the landscape. From prehistoric times, through the Roman period and into the Middle Ages, Oliver Rackham describes the changing character, role and history of trees and woodland. He concludes this definitive study with a section on the conservation and future of Britain’s trees, woodlands and hedgerows.
An acknowledged authority on the countryside and its history, the late Dr Oliver Rackham carried out research in the Botany Department at Cambridge University, where he was a Fellow of Corpus Christi College.
