Not yet rated | write a review
This book offers a detailed study of the types of trade that occurred in a medieval English market town. It focuses above all on the identity of buyers and sellers in late fourteenth-century Exeter, a port town that enjoyed particularly good overland connections throughout south-western England. More than most town histories, it explores the dynamic relationship between town and country, and traces how the urban center linked local and regional networks of exchange.
