    correct in formal English?

    Hi,

    I find the following sentence example in a dictionary, "Many of the traditions are remnants of a time when most people worked on the land." Is it equivalently correct to say "Many traditions are remnants of a time when most people worked on the land."?

    Thanks for the advice.
