The Place-Names of Devon
Research Summary Replace
My research aims to catalogue and etymologise the place-names of Devon in order to build on the previous work completed on the county in the EPNS Survey volumes 8 and 9. I will collect historical forms of place-names and use these to explore the social, economic and environmental history of the county.
I am currently in my first year of research which will involve creating a detailed gazetteer of Devonshire Place-Names grouped by the county's historic Hundreds.
