About this product
- DescriptionFarming to halves is the English version of sharefarming, a system of letting land familiar in Europe and the New World, but thought to never have existed in England. This book reveals its hidden history in England, overturning traditional accounts of the relationship between landlords and tenants in the course of English Agrarian development.
- Author BiographyELIZABETH GRIFFITHS spent four years sharefarming in New Zealand, before completing a PhD at the University of East Anglia in 1987. From 2003 to 2005 she worked with Dr Jane Whittle at Exeter on the household accounts of Lady Alice Le Strange, and then persuaded Prof. Mark Overton of the need for a research project on sharefarming in England. This book is the result. MARK OVERTON is Professor of Economic and Social History at the University of Exeter, UK. He has published widely on the economic and social history of early modern England, and on agrarian history, including Agricultural Revolution in England: the Transformation of the Agrarian Economy, 1500-1800.
