OUR ANCIENT WOODS

(2021)

Welcome to Britain, thousands of years ago. Walk through our ancient woods, our rivers and wetlands, our open meadows and dense forests, all thick with the sounds of nature. Hear the calls and movements of animals that roamed this landscape.


Every sound you hear was created using recordings taken at Wildwood Trust, a centre for the conservation of British wildlife that features both past and present species. Twenty-seven of these species appear in Our Ancient Woods:


Arctic Fox · Barn Owl · Boar · Common Crane · Eagle Owl · Eurasian Elk · Eurasian Lynx · Eurasian Otter · European Bison · European Brown Bear · European Polecat · European Wildcat · Fallow Deer · Grey Wolf · Konik Horse · Little Owl · Pine Marten · Raven · Red Deer · Red Fox · Red Squirrel · Red-Billed Chough · Reindeer · Rook · Soay Sheep ·

Tawny Owl · White Stork

Our Ancient Woods is the first piece from Sarah's PhD Portfolio. Find out more about her PhD research here.

 

About Wildwood Trust


Wildwood Trust opened in 1999 as a centre of excellence for the conservation of British wildlife, and was established as a registered charity in 2002.

As one of the leading British animal conservation charities in the UK, Wildwood Trust is dedicated to saving Britain's most threatened wildlife. Wildwood Trust has taken part in many ground-breaking conservation programmes to date, which include, saving the water vole, using wild horses to help restore Kent's most precious nature reserves, bringing the extinct European beaver back to Britain and returning the hazel dormouse & red squirrel to areas where they have been made extinct.

As well as the conservation charity, Wildwood has two much-loved wildlife parks, Wildwood Trust in Kent and Wildwood Escot in Devon, where visitors can connect and get up-close with British wildlife past, present and future including wolves, bears, red squirrels, arctic foxes, bison, wild boar, lynx, beavers, and wildcats.
