The Wood Age: How one material shaped the whole of human history
The Wood Age: How one material shaped the whole of human history5 1 5 Author: Roland Ennos Narrator: Dennis Boutsikaris
‘A stunning book on the incalculable debt humanity owes wood…’ John Carey, The Sunday Times
In a journey to appreciate how much wood matters – and has done since prehistory – Roland Ennos takes the reader chronologically through four key phases: the impact of wooded habits on the lives of primates; human emergence and the discoveries of fire and woodwork; wood’s role in an environment both pre- and post-industrialisation; and lastly, the possible future of wood in an increasingly technologized world.
In an original and essential investigation, The Wood Age challenges the traditional model of historical development – stone, bronze, iron – and instead guide readers through a revealing and innovative wooded history of the world.
