The Environmental Impact of Later Mesolithic Cultures: The Creation of Moorland Landscape in England and Wal

by Ian G. Simmons
 

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Simmons (geography, U. of Durham) offers an intriguing study overturning the idea that climatic change was entirely responsible for present day Britain's treeless, moorland landscape. Applying creative thinking to rigorous scholarship, the author examines scientific studies proposing that the moorland areas were forested at some point since the last Ice Age, provides evidence that human societies were implicated in the deforestation, and weighs the relative roles of natural forces and human societies on the moorland landscape. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
