Overview

Phoenix: Place-Names in the Landscape: The Geographical Roots of Britain's Place-Names by Margaret Gelling

Hills, valleys, trees and forests, roads and tracks, marshes and moors, ploughland and pastures, rivers and lakes: in the names of these and many other features history and tradition lie buried. Now, in her classic work, one of the foremost scholars of place-names unearths the meaning of these appellations, revealing a hidden past—invasions, the movement of whole peoples, the changing use of land. Every place, and its name, tells a story.
