Project Description
The object of the project is to discover from your local area examples of field systems, obtain estimates of dimensions and any available historical information concerning their origins. You might like to look at the Study of medieval field system at Appleby .

A link above is given to an on-line dictionary which includes many old legal terms and comments on etymology, but you may wish to look up elsewhere other words and usage to obtain more information to elaborate meanings and to make notes about the historical origins of the legal terminology---see for example On-line National Archives: Manorial Documents Glossary.
