The Environmental Impact of Later Mesolithic Cultures on the Moorlands of Britain
Britain's moorland is characterized by a lack of trees, yet scientists say that most, if not all, of these areas were forested at some point since the last Ice Age. This study rivals the suggestion that climatic change was entirely responsible for the treeless landscape, and offers evidence that human societies were also implicated in the demise of Britain's forests.
