The Value of Wild and TameValue of Wild and Tame Texts
A section included in the laws of country in the Cyfnerth and Blegywryd manuscripts, but in the Test Book in the Iorwerth manuscripts. The tractate presents paragraphs on domestic animals, noting what they should do, their usual growth, and the value of the animal. However, this is not a market price, but a guide for claiming the animal’s value. The section listing equipment and furniture is linked, and there are some sections on wild animals as well.
