In the business they payed more taxes to different lords on the way so the high powers around the area. the craftsmen and woman spun the raw wool into yarn and wove it into the cloth some even dying and fulling the cloth.The trade was mainly used in the "Golden Age" in the 14th and 15th centuries.
what if the site is neglected?why take care of it?
