We present rotation period measurements for 41 field M-dwarfs, all of which have masses inferred (from their parallaxes and Two Micron All Sky Survey K-band magnitudes) to be between the hydrogen burning limit and 0.35 M ? and thus should remain fully convective throughout their lifetimes. We measure a wide range of rotation periods, from 0.28 to 154 days, with the latter commensurate with the typical sensitivity limit of our observations. Using kinematics as a proxy for age, we find that the… Expand
