    Very interesting, and probably very true. People who were dependent on timber (or any other resource) would obviously put their mark on it.

    I read recently that the English had chopped down so many of their trees by the 11th century that they needed to import wood from elsewhere. And poor people in northern France couldn't even buy wooden coffins for their dead because of the rising prices on timber.

    Hardly the primeval Eden one often associates with medieval forests. :o
