The analysis shows many common features, for instance a large-scale ‘reclamation and tilling movement’ in the 16th and 17th centuries, when arable land was often divided into hundreds of small strips, which were apportioned to each of the houses in a particular tow...

    Rebuilding the Landscape of the Rural Post Office: A Geo-Spatial Analysis of 19th-century Postal Spaces and Networks

    This paper uses Post Office (PO) petitions to uncover the complex spatial relationships that developed through the unique social space of the PO.

Resources are ultimately in limited supply, causing competition within...
