5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, inspiring & open your mind to old ideas
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 September 2017
This is a really in-depth book about the histories that lead to farming as we know; the circumstances of changing relationship between Landowners, Labourers, Nobility, Peasantry, Church, Manure, Health and Moneys.

Also explores histories from China, Rome and Europe England, Netherlands, Italy to Babylon..

In all this would make a great resource book.
