The twentieth Myres Memorial Lecture discusses the presence and meaning of trees within the ancient Greek landscape. This lecture was delivered at New College, Oxford on 10 May 1999. It focuses on the presence and meaning of trees, raising questions as to how much of the land was forested, and how the ancients viewed and used trees, such as for fuel, and in building domestic structures, temples, ships and boats. Rackham draws on the written sources of the time, with references found in poetry, philosophical works and inscriptions, and on "field evidence".
