Investigating Tree Archaeology
History and Technology of Woodland Management & Product Use
16/17 May 2018, Sheffield
CALL FOR PAPERS
This is one of the events in our programme of Wilder Visions. There will be a follow-up 3-day event too.
The event will consider issues around the legacy of veteran trees and the evidence of past management and technologies that exist in the woods together with the transformed products, some of which are still found today. Whilst focussing on the UK, we would also like to attract speakers / poster presentations from other European countries with different and / or more recent traditions of management, production and process in woodlands.
