This chapter examines preserved cereal remains and animal bones dating from the Roman period. It concludes that: in the Roman, middle medieval, and post-medieval periods there were marked regional variations in farming practice across the different pays of the study area; certain districts have consistently had the same distinctive patterns of agriculture, and this tends to be where the geology leads to soils that impose particular constraints upon agriculture; and while some distinctive agricultural practices show continuity from the Roman through to the medieval period, others do not.

Keywords:   land use, regional farming, farming practices, regional variations, Blackdown Hills
