Contribution Members of the wider research team bring further expertise in place-names (especially Welsh names) and geoarchaeology.
Contribution Establishment and leadership of a new interdisciplinary research team seeking to explore how early medieval place-names might help to plan against contemporary flood threat in England and Wales. The relevance of place-names which convey information about the presence, behaviour and character of water in the landscape appears to have been revived in the last decade after more than a millennium of obsolescence. This is attested by the number of places with 'water' names that have recently fallen victim to flood (e.g Muchelney, Somerset; Chertsey, Surrey; Averham, Nottinghamshire. We are using water and woodland names to plot and model the hydrology of UK river catchments with a view to developing new strategies regarding the reforestation of headwaters, the restoration of wetlands, the appropriateness for flood defences, and identification of areas appropriate for housing development.
