BRITISH OAK

Login for pricing

The British Oak is a comprehensive overview of everything that the iconic oak tree signifies to Britain and its people.

Archie Miles explores the rise of oak woods since the last Ice Age, placing the tree in its biological, cultural and economic context. We still speak of the ‘heart of oak’ that built the British Empire, such is its importance in industry, architecture and shipbuilding, while the oak’s role in myth, art and literature took root in early civilisation and remains a rich imaginative resource.
