109 In his scholarly contributions, Paul Knoll both antedated and anticipated those changes, and thereafter has actively participated in them. His work has been a continuing, individual story of texturing a field. Polish matters Unlike (obviously) Paul Knoll himself, the readers of this book may not know Polish, or East Central European history. Therefore, let me briefly align some portions of Paul’s oeuvre with the actual chronology of Poland’s historical development. As we have seen, his work, especially over its first decade, had moved along a chronological course (roughly speaking from the fourteenth to the fifteenth centuries), whereas his principal contributions concerning those periods of Poland’s history which antedated or followed these two centuries were written relatively late in his career.

Toll schedules issued for them during the first quarter of the thirteenth century record above all payments assessed on imported cloth. The names used for this cloth (the frisal, the burnat) suggest a Flemish provenance of the payments, while the names of the ships used in its transport (the koggen, the maior navis) indicate an origin that is either German or Netherlandish. Quite probably the same, or closely similar, types of cloth were transported a bit later through the toll booths of Great Poland.

14 Investments of this kind reflect an existence of reasonably stable long-distance trade routes, something that differentiates, in yet another respect, long-distance trade from its local variant. Because that local variant usually did not require complicated methods of transport, a need for permanent points comprising a transport network did not arise. Instead, each locality interacted with its neighbouring points of settlement through the simplest and the most convenient spatial connections available at any given moment.
