Quick Reference


Area of land covered in trees that are maintained as a managed resource for the production of timber, underwood, coppice wood, browsing, and pannage. In medieval Europe woods were an extremely valuable economic resource and their management provided a livelihood for many people. Archaeologically, woods contain many features relating to the economic exploitation of the woodland resources including charcoal‐burning platforms, saw pits, internal subdividing banks, boundary works (woodbanks), and trackways.
