(Collectively, especially when on the ground) beechnuts.
- Acorns and beechmast were fed to pigs, but when food was scarce they could be ground and eaten by people too.
- Since beechmast are relatively heavy, they are not blown away by the wind but fall to the foot of the parent tree.
- Every autumn I would spend days there, watching the turning colours or grubbing for mushrooms and beechmast and knapped flints.
