In the period A.D. 400-1100, perhaps more than in any other, it is necessary to bring together the results of historical, archaeological and place-name studies. Each provides information that is either badly preserved or not preserved at all in the other two, but it is not always realised how great are the difficulties involves in co-ordination and integration. This book, originally published in 1962, draws attention to the problems and provides a basis for discussion.

The Origins of Louth offers a new and detailed look at the early history and evolution of Louth and its surrounding villages, based on the latest historical and archaeological research. It begins with the first human inhabitants of this region, who lived 400,000 years ago on the Wolds, and it ends around the time of Domesday Book, when Louth had developed into a true town and the whole region had begun to take on a recognizable form. It examines questions such as who were the first human inhabitants of the Louth region? When and how did people first begin to permanently settle in this region? And how did Louth develop into a significant local settlement and eventually a town? A full gazetteer of all archaeological finds made within 10 kilometres of Louth, from Fulstow to Tathwell and Donington to Manby, is provided as an appendix.

Every village or town has a name. We use them every day, even though most were created at least 1,300 years ago. Yet, until now, we knew little about how these names were given and even less about the people who originally used them. The innovative research in Surrey Place-names brings to life this little-known era of the past, the so-called 'Dark Ages' when Britons and Anglo-Saxon peoples coexisted and arrangements for administering the land evolved. Gavin Smith shows that geography is key to understanding these arrangements as river crossings, soil types and the need for trade at recognised places are all important. His work reveals that many parishes reflect patterns established in the Iron Age. There were many influences on the naming of Surrey's places: early paganism, multicultural mixing, economic development, land management, ecclesiastical history, regional politics, the influence of London, ...
