NAMING ELTON’S MEDIEVAL FIELDS: A SCIENTIFIC PERSPECTIVE, DR SUSAN KILBY
Dr Kilby’s paper on the medieval peasants of Wellingborough was a Midland History prize essay in 2009, but since then she has become particularly interested in the value of locality names. She is now honorary visiting fellow of the Institute of Name Studies at the University of Nottingham, an institution that bridges academic divides of Language and History. Her recent book. ‘Peasant Perspectives in the Medieval Landscape’ has been applauded for its interdisciplinary approach. For Huntingdonshire, we still depend on a place name dictionary compiled almost 100 years’ ago, something that surely needs putting right.
