Anglo Saxon Place Names

Dove si stabilirono gli anglosassoni in Gran Bretagna?

Città e Borghi

Anglo-Saxons name for towns was burh. The word 'burh' still appears in place names in Britain - Peterborough and Scarborough are two examples.

Names that tell the tribes

The first Anglo Saxon Villages were often named after the Chieftain (Leader of the village). This made it clear which tribe the village belonged to. These places often have the letters 'ING' of 'popolare' somewhere in their name, often at the end. The first part of the name was most likely to have been the name of the local chieftain.

The people who lived in the 'village' of Hastings were 'Haesta's people'.
Haesta was the chieftain.

The people who lived in the 'village' of Lettura were 'Redda's people'.
Redda was the chieftain .

Names that tell the Landscape

Later Anglo Saxon villages were named after a feature in their surroundings rather than the name of the chieftain.

Oxford got its name because it was a place where buoi were driven across a guado in a river.
