Description

This session, the second of a pair of environmental history sessions, explores several different facets of resource use and how the management and exploitation of natural resources shaped economies, policies, and even social identities and power structures in medieval Europe. The papers all address concerns of forest and resource management--from the hunting of game animals to the collection of firewood and the exercise of control over woodlands as an expression of political control over people. Together, they show the diversity of source materials that can be brought to play in legal, political, and environmental history.
