It is 1100 ad. In England, some oak trees grow. They keep growing for 920 more years. They grow through many historic events. Now they grow at a palace. They are protected in the palace’s walls.

No one knows how old they are. One expert thinks about it. He asks to study the oak trees. He looks at their circumferences. He sees how old they are.

The trees are special. They are the oldest oak trees in Europe. There are also many of them. People do not usually find this many old trees in one area.

Difficult words: ad (“anno domini” – in the year of our Lord, in the time after the death of Jesus Christ), circumference (the size of a thing which is shaped like a circle).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
