In the early modern period, when records begin to grow voluminous in parts of Europe, many of the links can be worked out in detail. Christian Pfister’s study of a group of Swiss cantons over more than three centuries is a model example (Pfister, 1984–1985). In places and times less well documented, more will have to be left open to hypothesis or supposition, but, as Haas, for example, has shown, many of these complexities can be approximately assessed even for a period with as limited documentation as the second and third century ce (Haas, 2006).
