Abstract

PROF. THOROLD ROGERS in his interesting book on “Work and Wages” mentions the relatively high value of rabbits in the thirteenth century, and suggests that they were then a recent introduction to England. It is well known that several islands on the west coast of Scotland have no rabbits upon them—for instance, Kerrera, which seems to point to the same conclusion. It would be interesting to know whether this is really the fact or not?
