Margaret Gelling's work is well-known in PN study therefore the book is what I expected and what I wanted. The book condition was fair but not annotated, something I do not appreciate unless I've done it myself! Anyone who studies PNs and has Gelling's Sign Posts to the Past needs this book to complement that one and other works on the subject.

Place names in the Landscape is a fascinating book, giving useful insights into how places were named in times of antiquity. Discover what your local places were in Viking times, or even earlier. For anyone who is interested in local history, this book is a must!

Written by the country's leading expert on English place names, the late Margaret Gelling, this book must be one of the best I have read on the subject. While it covers fewer place name elements than AH Smith's EPNS volumes, it does discuss all of the most common ones (and several less common elements as well), describing, in detail, their relationship to local topography, land use and (where relevent) administration. It goes without saying that the book is based upon many years of thorough research. It is also very well written and, consequently, easy to read - even for amateur local historians like me.

A hard read with loads of information but a bit of a trawl to get what you want. A bit to highly technical for my simple mind. Still, musn't complain, it sits on the front of the bookshelf and impresses visitors.
