A guide to over 4000 placenames in the British Isles. Placenames are a source of information about both local and national history and can also tell the story behind many people's names, the countryside and local families.;Much of the history of the country is hidden in placenames. Some elements are well-known, "-ham" is a Viking suffix and "-chester" is of Roman origin. But less well-known is that "Evesham" means "land in the bed of a river". The "Eve" element refers to an unknown Saxon called "Eof" whose name occurs in a different form in London's "Euston".
