...Case Study ’, Economic History Review , 58/3 (2005). As expenditure rose, a method of supplementing low wages with an allowance paid for out of the rates that was adopted by the parish of Speenhamland (Berkshire) in 1795 was widely copied in southern England. This allowance varied according to the cost of bread, but as local farmers deliberately kept wages low, in the knowledge that allowances would be given by the parish, the number of people on poor relief actually rose. The system was discredited before the New Poor Law system was introduced in ...

...success the spectacular potential of the play’s subject matter attracted further 19th-century producers, in both London and New York, despite the difficulties presented by its profusion of scenes. These included Charles Calvert in 1867 , F. B.

When the Mycenean civilization was destroyed around 1200 bc , the knowledge of writing perished with it. Around the middle of the 8 th century bc , the Greeks borrowed...
