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 6,000 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 analysed 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.

Industry Reviews

"...[an] exceptionally valuable work. This work is highly recommended, and it is indispensable for any economic historian of medieval and early-modern Britain." Albion "The excessive amount of effort devoted by the suthors to collecting their data demands a high degree of respect. ...I have the highest regard both for the effort and precision devoted to collecting and processing the data and for the intellectual challenge the interpretations represent... This book is an illustrative example of the complicated puzzle presented by price history, the solution of which will lead us closer to understanding the ins and outs of both the late medieval and early modern society." Leo Noordegraaf, Journal of Economic History
