(A D Mills) Dorset is blessed with a rich variety of place-names, many of them unique to the county or made up of rare Celtic words that are now obsolete.
Some are Anglo-Saxon, some Norman French or Latin. Others provide clues about the economy of a place, even its industries, crops or soil.
The author breathes fresh life into a remarkable aspect of Dorset’s long past.
