Re: C16 words relating to trees and woodland

Hi webweaver - I'm afraid I can't give you an image of the MS as it is for a archival transcription assignment and I can't ask for help reading it.

Hello, As part of a project for Egham Museum I am trying to build a picture of the changing nature of the landscape in this part of Surrey. I'm aware this is a bit of a broad question, but I was wondering if anyone could give me a general idea of the type of farming or land use that went on in Surre...
