EPNS Lecture 2021

Online (Microsoft Teams)
Description
Field-names, which are intimately bound up with agrarian history, allude to a wide range of characteristics (field shape; vegetation; land use; soil quality; land ownership, etc.) and, hence, can shed light on the evolution of the rural landscape from the medieval period to modern times. Using examples from the Lake District and surrounding areas, this lecture will explore the relationship between field-names and field systems, including open fields, seigniorial enclosures and areas of medieval colonisation, as well as discussing the lost minor names of the unenclosed fellsides, which formed an integral part of the upland farming system.
