    Research topic: Agrarian Capitalism in England, c.1650 - c.1800: A new methodological approach

    My research challenges traditional approaches to the development of agrarian capitalism in England by proposing a new way of defining and measuring capitalist agrarian development. I employ an innovative methodology to reconstruct and map seventeenth- and eighteenth-century landholding in more detail than has previously been possible. Using this dataset, I examine the lives of individual cultivators, focusing on subletting, by-employment, life cycle, labour, and market orientation.
