For what it's worth...

The Campaspe Genealogy blog has alerted me to a website that could be very useful for anyone looking to convert historical prices to today's amounts: Measuring Worth.

For example, if you found that your Great Grandfather was left £100 in a will, you could use this site to get an idea of what that amount is equivalent to now. Created by two academics, it includes information relevant to the UK, US and Australia going right back to the ̃1700s.
