Norfolk Slip Collection Report

 

Norfolk Slip Collection Report

Thanks to the kind support of Jim and Mary Ann Wilkes we have been able to undertake research to investigate if the collection of material in the library of the English Place-Name Society relating to Norfolk will support the writing-up of a dictionary of Norfolk place-names. Such an outcome would be planned for the EPNS Popular Series, and, in the tradition of the publication of Alfred Oscroft’s work on Hampshire, would ensure that work done by earlier scholars was made available. This generous donation has enabled Ellen Fisher to spend a month working through the archive, assessing its scope and coverage, under the supervision of Dr Paul Cavill, and we are delighted to be able to report on the results.
