A Peasant from Bohemia during the Thirty Years’ War. The Chronicler of Northern Bohemia Michel Stüeler and his Agricultural Production
Languages of publication
The study deals with agricultural production of the burgher of Krupka (Graupen) in Northern Bohemia Michel Stüeler, who was although primarily a craftsman, a tanner, but as a result of the events of the Thirty Years’ War and the demands of the craftsmen-working he paid more and more intensively attention to his fields and gardens. On his agricultural lands grew first of all cereals, nevertheless experimented also with quite new plants, such as potatoes and maize, probably without bigger success. To his favorite activities belonged vegetable-growing and first of all fruit-growing (he grew also grapevine), Stüeler grafted fruit-trees too and bred goodly number of farming animals. His activities such as many the then agricultural experiences noted Stüeler in his diary, which survived in a transcription to this day and was not long ago opened to the public in a scientific edition.
