HISTORY OF BRITISH LAND TAXATION

It may occupy a couple of hours including 30 minutes or so of questions, but you’ll be rewarded by this talk by Sir Kenneth Jupp if you’d like to understand the critical role played by land taxation through early British history.

Jupp actually truncates most of the history, but  makes sense for us of many of those previously vague terms such as “hides”, “scutage”, “perches”, etc.
