English Place-Name Survey
To collect evidence for the history of the place-names of England, organise it geographically and thematically, explore the origin of names and publish the results
The Survey of English Place-Names is conducted and published by the English Place-Name Society. County by county, its volumes provide an explanation of the meaning and origin of the place-names (and, for many counties, field-names as well) in each part of England thus covered. The explanations define the source and date of the earliest extant record, and the linguistic, ethnic, historical, geographical and archaeological significance of each place-name both in its immediate context and in a broader view. These volumes have become necessary equipment for both the professional and amateur historian, geographer, archaeologist and philologist.
