Re: The Land Utilisation Survey of Britain ed L. D. Stamp

I agree, but due diligence has to be done in case someone is out there and proves to be difficult when they discover what we have done.

BTW, I am not sure that Americans talk of bottoms in quite the way you mention. I think the word is [type of donkey]!

Re: 18th Century Recipe Booklet - for cows

The person who might be interested is Professor Louise Curth at Winchester.

I am afraid that it is very hard for historians to use documents in private hands as it may well be impossible to verify the information they contain.

Re: Animal stockades

It would be interesting to see the hawthorns to see how mature they are. I don't think of Hawthorn as being particularly long lived, but that might be mistake.

You could approach the question thr...

Re: Murrain

Dear Alan, To re-enter the fray on this after Catherine was talking about another contributor's recent post, I wondered whether you had looked at the online newspapers. Murrain does not come up very often in the Wiltshire papers, but there are reports of a disease of cattle and pigs in Somerset in t...
