I'm looking for an inventory of the principal goods, buildings, livestock, and workers of a European farmstead; preferably before 1000 AD.

I know I've seen a primary source document like this before. It may have been for a Roman villa, which would be just fine.

@Luke, any European one would be fine. – Joe Aug 21 '12 at 21:06
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is a source request. – Samuel Russell May 12 '15 at 22:26
