Subject: RE: Origins: Rigs of the Time / Rigs of the Times
There are several versions of Rigs of the Times" around the internet, but I would dearly like to assemble a collated version in which the prices complained of were consistent - A time when meat was two shillings a pound, a loaf fourpence, beer fourpence a quart, and butter a shilling a pound. Is there an economic historian with a view of English price fluctuations in the house?
