How much has the value of money changed over the centuries? What is the modern equivalent of a sum of money recorded in an early modern document? Questions such as these constantly arise as we study local history.
In a clear and authoritative way, this book will help you understand how prices, wages and standards of living have influenced the value of money. The author explains various methods by which such changes may be calculated, to discover the complex answers to our apparently simple questions, (and you don’t need a computer).
