Trees in Anglo-Saxon England

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Trees in Anglo-Saxon England by Della Hooks.

Trees played a particularly important part in the rural economy of Anglo-Saxon England, both for wood and timber and as a wood-pasture resource, with hunting gaining a growing cultural role. But they are also powerful icons in many pre-Christian religions, with a degree of tree symbolism found in Christian scripture too. This wide-ranging book explores both the real, historical and archaeological evidence of trees and woodland, and as they are depicted in Anglo-Saxon literature and legend. Place-name and charter references cast light upon the distribution of particular tree species (mapped here in detail for the first time) and also reflect upon regional character in a period that was fundamental for the evolution of the present landscape.

Della Hooke is Honorary Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Research in Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Birmingham.

This hardback book published in 2010 is in excellent condition. The binding is sound and all the pages are clean and unmarked. There is some slight creasing to the dustjacket around the top and bottom of the spine and at the top of the book but otherwise the book appears as new.
