The History of Old Occupations

I have a new article in the latest (March 2019) issue of Family Tree magazine (UK). 

In it I discuss the development of different occupations and industries from the Middle Ages onward, related, of course, to what was going on with climate (more than just my hobby horse).

If you have access to the publication, I hope you will take a look.
