The Curving Plough-strip and its Historical Implications
Agricultural History Review, Volume 3, No. 2 (1955)
To all those who find delight in the changing face of the countryside the problem of locating and delimiting the areas of medieval ploughland is a fascinating one. In spite of all the investigations that have been carried out during the past hundred years, however, the problem remains, in the main, unsolved. In some localities a high degree of certainty may have been reached, but the exact boundaries on the medieval land-use map have yet to be drawn for most of Britain. There is still far too much basic disagreement over the interpretation of evidence for even tentatiye conclusions to be reached.
