Log Book was a co-commission between the Woodland Trust, Common Ground, Threshold Studios and Lincoln Cathedral.
Log Book by the London-based collective Assemble, seeks to reconnect British people with the nation’s woodlands and with the lives and skills of those who work in them through living performance.
“Woodlands used to be a massive part of life. Every town, village and city relied on timber for building homes, heating homes, foraging, medicine and myths. Many people were employed by woodland industry and craft.”
Log Book was commissioned on the 800th Anniversary of The Charter of the Forest, a companion document to Magna Carta, to celebrate the launch of a new Charter for Trees, Woods and People, led by the Woodland Trust. The new charter is now displayed alongside the Magna Carta and Charter of the Forest at Lincoln Castle.
