It is sub-divided into nine different sections   dealing with the following aspects of the land system:   a) land sale, b) land-grants, c) types of land, d) land    survey demarcation and boundary disputes, e) land measurement,   f) land tenure, g) price of land, h) demand for land, and e)   ownership of land.The fourth chapter is devoted to some of the crafts and    industries practised in our period.  The fifth chapter on trade and commerce contains two   sections - a) internal, and b) external trade.Our sixth chapter studies the revenue system and in   this connexion we analyse the different revenue terms found    in the land gpants and try to explain several on which there   is difference of opinion among scholars.The seventh and final chapter deals with the coinage   system, mainly from the economic point of view.   ACCTOWXiBDGEamPSI wish to acknowledge my deep gratitude to my supervisors   Professor A* L.
