Wool Trade

The mighty wool trade was the backbone of the English economy for centuries. The sheep farming, the fulling mills, the dyeing, weaving, marketing and financing of the wool and cloth trades are explained in 'The Founding' chapter of SARUM, and elsewhere in that book.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
Only one man was allowed to live in the royal palace of China, known as the Forbidden City: the emperor. All the other inhabitants were either women - wives, concubines or servants - or the famous palace eunuchs. Nearly all eunuchs were castrated when they were still only boys. But there were just a few who chose to be castrated after they became men, and even had children of their own. They did it for the money.
