Notes:

The sower follows immediately behind the ploughman. Fig. 238, which is a literal copy from another manuscript, presents, at once, the operations of ploughing, sowing, mowing, measuring corn into sacks, and the harvest supper. (p. 67)

See also Fig. 227. I note here that most of the farmers shown here are barefoot, and somewhat scantily clad. Anglo-Saxon England may have been warm, or clothing was expensive. Also note that “corn” would have been wheat, oats or barley, not maize.
