The woodlands of England were not only deep rooted in every aspect of Anglo-Saxon material culture - as a source of heat and light,food and drink, and wood and timber for the construction of tools weapons and materials - but also their spiritual life, symbolic vocabulary, and sense of connection to their beliefs and heritage.
This set of essays focus on not only the practicalities such as carpentry techniques and the extent of wooodland coverage, but rather explore the place of trees and timber in the intellectual lives of the early medieval inhabitants of England, using evidence from archaeology, place names, landscapes and written sources.
