A Study of Prices, Money, and Weights and Measures
Author: Elizabeth Gemmill
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Category: Business & Economics
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.
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!
