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.
'Field is the leading expert in field name studies, and, not suprisingly, this book is a thorough, indeed a monumental work, dense, scholarly and well researched.' Rural History
