Notebooks of the olive harvesting campaigns

    Field notebooks on olive pickers working seasonally in the Kingdom of Majorca. The notebooks document the workers’ participation in the olive harvest and olive oil production and their salaries. Information recorded for each migrant women worker includes her given name, surname, village of origin and number of days working in the fields. Most notebooks of this type were kept in the family archives of nobles and have not survived; these notebooks were uniquely preserved in the Chapter Archives of Mallorca.
