The Economic History Working Paper Series was launched in 1992. Contributions to the series have been made by members of staff of the Economic History department, academic visitors, and research students. Subject matters have been wide ranging and diverse. We no longer produce printed versions, but some back copies are available on application to the department.
The most recent papers are available online in PDF format. If you don't have the Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer, download it from Adobe.
