Medieval Sheep and Wool Types

Visit Website
Description The approach I propose to make in this paper is first to look at modern breeds, and their distributi on in the recent past, to see how far their ancestry can be pushed back towards the Middle Ages. Then a brief considerat ion will be given of the meagre pre-mediev al evidence, including the origin of British sheep, and finally the Middle Ages will be covered in greater detail, taking each source of evidence in turn. Although I have used new evidence from wool in textile remains, it has not been possible to relate the findings to cloth descriptio ns used by economic historians .
