Peasant’s crafts in the northern districts of Tambov province in the 80s of the XIX century

Annotation

We consider the features of non-agricultural occupations of the peasant population of the Tambov province on the basis of data from the household censuses of the 1880s. We focus on the natural conditions of Shatsky, Spassky, Temnikovsky and Yelatomsky counties, which strongly influenced the peasants occupation of the north's province. The income and economic well-being of the peasants of the northern counties depended more on the crafts developed in their locality and hunting on the off-site earnings (carpentry, construction work, deforestation, tailoring, trade, hauling, etc.) than on farming in their infertile areas.
