Thorps in A Changing LandscapeeBook - 2011
Considering the minor settlements of England's Danelawvillages known as thorps or thropsthis history demonstrates how place-name evidence can be used to understand early cultures. By integrating linguistic and archaeological approaches, it establishes a compelling connection between the creation of these place-names and the fundamental changes taking place in the English landscape between AD 850 and 1250. The integral role of thorps in revolutionizing agricultural practice at that time is thoroughly analyzed.
