Historic Place-Names of Wales

  • March 20, 2013

This database, which will be published later in 2013, contains the earliest recorded forms of the 5000 places named in Melville Richards’ Welsh Administrative and Territorial Units (Cardiff: University of Wales Press, 1969). It is being prepared at the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies, and we are pleased to acknowledge the assistance – in the form of a database recreating the administrative links in WATU – given by Humphrey Southall (http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/).
