Synopsis

The Archaeology of Rabbit Warrens by Tom Williamson

Rabbit farming was an important part of the rural economy from medieval times through to the early twentieth century, and the archaeological remains of rabbit warrens still litter the countryside. This book describes the main archaeological features of warrens and discusses their date and function, the banks and walls used to contain the rabbits, the traps used to catch both them and their vermin predators, the lodges in which the warreners lived and kept their equipment and, above all, the buries or pillow bounds in which the rabbits were encouraged to reside.
