Talks

Hadrian Cook

Hadrian Cook Talk on Trees 
Information We all revere historic woodlands and forests for reasons including leisure, landscape value, nature conservation and spiritual renewal. Compared with some countries, England has comparatively little ‘ancient woods’ due to clearance, and because what we think of as forest is often a product of plantation. Actually,  ancient woodlands are only considered as such because they were in existence before 1600 AD.
Before agriculture started in Britain (around 6,000 years ago), people hunted and gathered within a forest that covered most of the country. While this implies a close relationship between humans and woods, the form of this ‘wildwood’ remains a matter of debate. Furthermore, it is easy to presume that ancient woods are remnants of the wildwood, but there is archaeological and ecological evidence to suggest this may not always be the case. Humans have been managing, cutting down and leaving areas of woods to re-generate for millennia. This talk will outline the debate around ancient woodland history describing the issues, including reference to the New Forest.Hadrian Cook trained as an environmental scientist. He teaches and writes on landscape history and is author of ‘New Forest:  The Forging of a Landscape’ (2017) published by Windgather Press.
