Manchester vs: London - The etymology of the place-names of the two areas in connection with British history
Halmstad University, School of Humanities (HUM).
2008 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The fact that five invasions have taken place in Great Britain, which all made a big impact on the country, makes the history of place-names particularly interesting. The aim of this essay is therefore to compare place-names in the Manchester area and the London area, and try to find the origin of the names. An additional aim is to find out which foreign invasion, if any, has coloured the areas the most.
