Jim Bolton: The Medieval World

Professor Jim Bolton of Queen Mary, University of London, spoke to the WP on two topics.

He first ran a session on “The Black Death”, focusing on the huge depopulation this caused, and the reasons which prevented numbers recovering as quickly as they might.

Later he spoke on “How monetarised was the Medieval Economy?”, a challenging and technical talk for our economists.
