A History of English Field-names, Paperback

A History of English Field-names Paperback

Part of the Approaches to Local History series


Field names are not only interesting in themselves, but also a rich source of information about the communities originating them.

The earliest recorded names often describe only the location or nature of the land, but changes in language, technology, social organisation, land ownership and even religious and political thinking have all contributed to a surprisingly complex picture today.

A pioneering history.
