Description - Domesday Gazetteer by H. C. Darby
This Gazetteer is intended to supplement the other volumes of The Domesday Geography of England by providing an index of place-names together with maps showing their location. The number of separate places named in the Domesday Book amounts to over 13,400. They are often mentioned more than once in different spellings, with the result that the number of entries in the index exceeds 36,000. Both Domesday names and their modern equivalents are given, thus showing how the various Domesday names have been identified. The arrangement is intended to be useful to those who approach the Gazetteer either from the point of view of modern names or from that of Domesday names. The 65 pages of maps show the distribution of Domesday places against a background of relief and rivers. Although designed primarily for readers of The Domesday Geographies, the Gazetteer will also be of use to others who work in the field of English medieval history and geography.
