This is a profound book that is both practical and poetic. It describes a way of life that is economically and ecologically viable and sets a new standard for managing our woods in a low-impact, sustainable way. As such, it holds some of the fundamental keys to how we can achieve a lower-carbon society.

The first section provides alternatives to some of the difficulties researchers face and highlights methodological innovations as geographers uncover new and exciting ways of working. The second part specifically addresses the issues surrounding children and youth’s participation providing critiques of current practice and offering alternatives for increasing young people’s involvement in research design. Finally, the book broadens to a consideration of wider areas of concern for those working with children and youth.

Much interest surrounds the story of woodland crafts and the men who worked amongst the trees making the domestic and agricultural implements that were once familiar to all but have now disappeared almost as completely as the dedicated craftsmen themselves. All over Britain there were centres for rake makers, bowl turners and chairmakers, while in the Midlands the clogger played an essential part in industrial life. The tools they used were, in general, common to all the woodland crafts, but each trade had some kind of break or horse or special cutting tool that was designed for a particular task and was peculiar to that craft. It is fortunate that over the years a number of writers have photographed and made detailed reports on these craftsmen and their products, and that several museums such as the Salaman Collection at St. Alban's and the Museum of English Rural Life at Reading founded collections of the tools before they completely disappeared. These documents and artefacts are now of the greatest social importance, for the woodland crafts, with their economical use of natural materials, provided an unlimited supply of essential objects for use in village life long before such objects were mass-produced.

The latest fascicule from the York Archaeological Trust presents over 1,500 wooden objects and woodworking implements recovered from excavations around Coppergate. Roman and non-Roman material was recovered, but the majority of items came from tenement plots dating from the 9th to 15th centuries. The huge variety of objects, grouped by type, mainly comprise small portable, domestic and utilitarian artefacts and the waste production from manufacture, but also include wooden building accessories, such as shingles, and items reworked from ship timbers. Possibly the most significant group of objects is the small spindle-turned cups and their associated waste production, published here in great detail. Each find is catalogued along with details about the practical use of the object and the nature of the wood itself. Reference is made to material from the only other comparable site, Viking Dublin, and from other sites in Britain and northern Europe.
