    A patchwork of woods and fields, with ancient hedgerows, winding lanes and small villages, the Forest of Bere in Hampshire now covers approximately 100 square miles, but was once a much larger royal forest. In this richly illustrated book, the authors describe the area's history since Roman and Saxon times and they reveal its all-but-forgotten identity in the distinct character of the landscape and its exceptional wildlife diversity.
