The INS had a session at this year's International Medieval Congress, entitled 'Productive Ground: place-names and the landscapes of food provision'. It was chaired by Jayne Carroll and featured papers by Rebecca Gregory, Eleanor Rye and John Baker. The session explored different ways in which place-names can contribute to our understanding of the medieval food economy, bringing together research from two of the latest projects at the Institute — Travel and Communication in Anglo-Saxon England and The Place-Names of Shropshire—and results from Rebecca's PhD.
