The name derives from Stara Bridge, a medieval clapper bridge located at the south of the woods.
It is made up of three discrete woods: Colquite Wood and Treovis Wood, deciduous woodlands dating back at least to the 17th century; and Broad Wood, a conifer plantation dating to the 1980s, and in process of being replanted with oak, beech and hazel.
1000 and, as discussed in the previous section, can be traced back to patterns that began in the Archaic period.
Pottery, for instance, didn't reach east Texas until after 500 B. and wasn't in common use in some parts of the area until over a thousand years later. For some areas, such as the lower Mississippi Valley, the timing and sequence of developments is relatively well known.

The mound was 29 meters (94 feet) in diameter and 2.4 meters high (almost 8 feet) and was built over the cremated remains of at least two individuals placed into a shallow pit. As is the case with the Archaic, the Woodland concept began as a developmental stage and is used as a major time period dated somewhat differently from region to region. These Woodland period developments span two millennia from about 1000 B. Here we will stick primarily to what is known about the Caddo area and the adjacent lower Mississippi Valley. Explaining or even briefly reviewing Woodland developments as they relate to the ancestors of the Caddo is a challenge.
In this photo archeologists are just beginning work (an old looter's trench is visible near the center of the mound). Woodland period cultural developments help us understand the crystallization of the Caddo culture tradition around A. Occupying the southwestern edge of the Eastern Woodlands, the Caddo Homeland was a cultural frontier of sorts that lay beyond (west of) the areas where most of the early and middle Woodland developments took place. 800 or shortly thereafter, a seemingly precocious Early Caddo culture emerged with many of the elements considered characteristic of the Mississippian period after A. We do not have enough solid data to explain what happened century by century or even subperiod by subperiod because somewhat different things happened at different times in different areas.
