This website was originally hosted by the University of Exeter. In order to make the data more widely available, the authors - A.J.S. Gibson and T.C. Smout - have now made the data available to the Historical Prices and Wages website. At some relevant points the original text of their website has been changed accordingly in order to provide for easy and consistent use.
