Item Description

8vo. 6.5 x 9.5 inches. xxi + [i] + 426 pp. Bound in original green cloth, gilt, in pictorial dust wrapper. A very good copy. Illustrated throughout by 16 maps and 15 tables. A detailed study of the evolution of Kentish settlement from the end of the Romano-British period and the coming of the Jutish settlers down to the fourteenth century. The author interprets the extensive place-name, cartographic and landscape material available for the county, and in conclusion attempts to assess the extent to which the uniquely abundant early Kentish evidence may shed light on the evolution of settlement elsewhere in England. Alan Everitt (1926-2008) was a Kent born historian who spent a greater part of his career at the Department of Local History, University of Leicester, ultimately becoming Professor and Head of Department.
