Nov 01 Wooded landscapes conference
Lyn Palmer, Historic Environment Awareness Project Officer for the Weald Forest Ridge in conjunction with the Sussex Archaeological Society is organising , ‘The Archaeology of Wooded Landscapes’ conference next February.
Hopefully it will interest people who own, work and manage woods as well as the heritage people. In particular, Patrick Roper’s talk about the interaction of ecology and archaeology in woodland shoud be fascinating, and also Mark
Gardiner’s talk about the way woods have been used/worked over time.
There are free field trips on the Sunday morning – a chance to see a
wood in a new light. They will also be handing out the Archaeology
Identification charts to those attending.
The Waste Wood owners, (through woodlands.co.uk) are speaking on the day
- they’ve been working together to investigate the wood as a whole, so
are a great case study of woods in multiple ownership being surveyed and
researched as one entity within the wider landscape.
