Are the differences in Britain's contemporary regional mortality partly a legacy from the disasters which befell nineteenth-century peasant populations?
The rise of Britain's industrial cities was linked with recruitment from populous but vulnerable peasant economies in the (largely Celtic) north and west of the British Isles, and in Glasgow this was linked with exceptionally high mortality.
Three way of accounting for the first of these linkages, between industrial cities and peasant migration considered, drawing on analyses of rural Malthusian pressures, of the industrial labour market, and of cultural divisions on the Celtic periphery.
These accounts all predict a particular urban and regional geography of mortality which is confirmed in nineteenth-century data.
