Questioning the myth that in prehistoric times Britain was swathed in a virtually impenetrable wildwood Dr. Richard Muir
shows that from earliest times woodland has been manipulated and transformed. He looks at Britains' great landmark trees before examining the function of ancient trees and hedgerows in the landscape.He looks at the development of the deer parks of the middle ages and how they influenced the great landscape parks of the eighteenth century. There are chapters on the Men of the forests, and the woodlands of the mind- the all important symbolism of trees as well as their utilitarian function in Britain's landscape. 256pp, many photos both B&W and colour.
