Peter Fowler has written an authoritative account of farming in Britain in the first millennium AD. This is the first synthesis of our knowledge on this topic for a generation. Successive chapters assemble and analyse the latest evidence on farms, fields, technology, food, diet and society. New interpretations are offered on subjects ranging from implements to illuminated manuscripts, and evidence drawn from Northern England, Scotland and Wales contributes significantly to the story. The book concludes with a magisterial review of the ways in which agriculture shaped early Britain's societies and landscapes. It also proposes a chronological model of British agriculture for the whole millennium.
