Wytham Through the Ages | University of Oxford


There are currently 14 films in this series now but let’s go back and revisit the film that started it all (and see some wonderful snowy scenes too).

Wytham Woods is the most studied piece of woodland on earth. From the birds, to the grasses, from the trees to the badgers, from the voles to the insects; almost everything in this beautiful bastion of English countryside has come under the microscope -- contributing to decades of cutting-edge scientific research at Oxford University. Wytham truly is the Laboratory with Leaves. In this first film we look at how the woods would have been used through the ages, right up to the bustling research that goes on today.
