Manchester vs : London - The etymology of the place-names of the two areas in connection with British history

University essay from Högskolan i Halmstad/Sektionen för humaniora (HUM)


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.

An additional aim is to find out which foreign invasion, if any, has coloured the areas the most.
