About this objectThe Romans first introduced rabbits to Britain. The Normans brought them again later. Prized for their meat and fur, they were kept in specially made warrens. About 1400, a rabbit was worth more than a labourer’s daily wage. We know where some warrens were because of place names like Warren Close at Maydencroft.
