Rabbit; Pirton, Herts, TL13/k; 1/NZ/1258
RabbitAbout this object
The Romans first introduced rabbits to Britain. The Normans brought them again later. Prized for their meat and fur, they were kept in specially made warrens. About 1400, a rabbit was worth more than a labourer’s daily wage. We know where some warrens were because of place names like Warren Close at Maydencroft.Field Collector
