Who first named the places in the Washburn Valley and what languages did they speak? Was the Valley invaded by thousands of Celts, Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Normans – or does the place name evidence tell a different story? Gillian Waters, our Archivist, gives an overview of the changing nature of place names and what they tell us about the peoples who lived in the Washburn Valley.
