Title:Lime as a Means of Agricultural Improvement: The Devon Example
Originator:Havinden, M.
Summary:Devon was known for its advanced farming practices in the mid 17th century, thus the question of the extent to which liming was responsible for this relative pre-eminence is relevant. All along the north and south coasts of the county the mouldering remains of disused lime kilns stand, and many estuarine, river and inland sites have also been discovered.
