Changing Agriculture in Georgian and Victorian Norfolk takes the period from the begining of the 18th century up to the beginning of the First World War and looks at how Norfolk developed as an agricultural county. What made Norfolk such a centre of development? Was it the availability of labour, with little option but to work the land? Was it innovative landowners? How significant was the development of machinery made possible by the Industrial Revolution?
Susanna Wade Martins draws on traditional sources and new evidence to examine this great period of change in Norfolk’s story.
