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?
The first MGM Lion was Irish. The iconic MGM lion, which appears before every MGM film since the studio’s birth, has been a number of different lions since the early 20th century, but the very first MGM Lion was a Dubliner! Slats, born in the Dublin Zoo in 1919, was used on every black and white MGM film between 1924 and 1928. To this day, he is the only MGM lion not to roar, though reportedly he could growl on cue.
