Description

Wood has been a staple of life and trade for as long as humans have cut down trees. In the ancient world wood and charcoal were the foremost fuels, with timber also being used extensively in construction, transport, warfare, furniture-making and even the arts. The early design of mortise and tenon joinery was found in Egyptian furniture from 2500BC and spread throughout Europe and the Middle East. Although stone was used in many advanced cultures for construction, wood remained the basic building block for many peoples. Nothing surpassed it if you wanted to go to sea. Boat and ship building developed throughout the ages and timber supplies were crucial when establishing a navy.
