Description: 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.
