This is a full-scale study of prices in medieval Scotland, c. 1260-1542, which includes detailed discussions of coinage, and weights and measures. Nearly 6000 prices are listed individually, average prices are calculated for each commodity, and for groups of commodities such as cereals and livestock. Scots prices are compared with English, and the significance of the data for the economic history of medieval Scotland is analyzed fully. This is the only full study to have been undertaken on Scots medieval prices, and there is no comparable work on Scottish medieval economic history in print.

Originally published in 1985. Frederic C. Lane and Reinhold C. Mueller, in the first volume of Money and Banking in Medieval and Renaissance Venice, discuss Venice's economic achievement in terms of the complex system the city's inhabitants developed to manage moneys of account and coins. Money merchants of Venice developed a system whereby a premium attached to moneys of account acted as a stabilizing force and allowed merchants to engage in long-term trade. This system, according to the authors, helped establish Venice as a dominant city-state in international trade and exchange. This book outlines the development and success of this system through 1508. At the time it was first published, this book made a significant contribution to the history of money and economics by underscoring the large role that Venice played in the economic history of the West and the ascendance of capitalism as a structuring force of society.

In 2012, Bradley Howard set off on a journey which lasted almost a month, which ran roughly 1,000 miles from the southern most tip of the U.K. to the northern most part of it. During his cycle, Bradley visited County after County, and he 'no-trace' camped every night of it. As if that wasn't enough, he took on many National Parks such as Dartmoor and The Cairngorms. Whilst on the tour, he saw many amazing sights including Lichfield Cathedral, Edinburgh Castle, and the Forth Road Bridge, and much more besides. Through his trip, Bradley kept a journal, which he has now turned into this book, to share his knowledge and adventures with others. In this book, he gives us his reflections on profound insights that came from his adventure, how he managed to live on a budget whilst being on the road, and how he kept himself fuelled whilst he still maintained his Vegan diet. Along the way, Bradley worked hard to tread in harmony with the environment. So pack your pannier bags, let's go on an adventure!
