comment What did farmers/laborers use for boots before modern rubber existed?
@PieterGeerkens While there's much to admire about restoring nascent Dutch agricultural capitalism to its proper place in historical narratives of capitalism, I went for the simplification (perhaps improperly). Regarding my interpretation of the hours, I should improve this answer to indicate that the list of responses are partial. Given my beliefs regarding the range of poverty amongst vagabonds, waste settlers / squatters and cotters I'd still stand by barefoot as an answer for some peasants as a standard year round state. I will be modifying my answer to take account.

1) It is obviously "all of it." 2) I have amended the answer. 3) A society where bread isn't consumed as a commodity won't have a stable price. Athens was always its hinterland, Rome was always the latifunda and Egyptian fields.
