While doing my research on my Tait ancestors I came across these publications..
These helped me tell the story of my ancestors, giving prices of produce, dairy, beer and wine, cattle, candles, fuel etc, and what wages they might have made per day.
I then found that there are issues for various years from 1259 to 1793 of "A History of Agriculture and Prices in England".
So I went in search of other publications that would give the cost of goods and wages at various times and places in history.
