Sense of Place in Anglo-Saxon England


The papers in this volume explore the ways in which sense of place were forged in the Anglo-Saxon period, with perspectives taken from place-name scholars, historical geographers, archaeologists and historians. Place-names lie at the heart of the enquiry, and the essays clearly show how significant they were in the processes of identity creation and definition, and how important they remain in any modern attempt to understand the distant past.
