Description

Yew is renowned for its association with magic and witchcraft and is still used today in chemotherapy. It was widely believed that Yew trees poisoned soil and killed cattle which was why they were planted in graveyards, where no further harm could be done. This tree grew on the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex.


The structural differences between sap- and heart wood were exploited by English longbow makers during the Hundred Years War and most famously at the Battle of Agincourt in 1415.
