Simulating Intergenerational Mobility Amongst the English Medieval Peasantry

We are working to implement an agent-based simulation model (coded in Java) that will produce new estimates of social mobility for the medieval English peasantry. First we organized, processed, and analyzed a data set of over 30,000 individual seed yield entries from harvest records of English manors during the period 1211 to 1491. Then we used the estimate of seed yields as an input to our agent- based simulation model. We then plan to use this model to generate counterfactual estimates of social mobility (and other measures).
