Abstract

The wide spatial distribution and the similarity of the agricultural systems in Ireland, Scotland and northern England suggests that they do not emerge from a common stem, but arose out of independent invention in the form of similar responses in comparable environments to the fiscal and rent demands made upon rural communities and the need to manage the land in a sustainable manner. That view also allows that rundale, runrig and the northern English open fields might have emerged at different times as rural groups worked out their solutions to managing the land.
