Description

Poster print featuring the major river names of Northern England (Yorkshire, Lancashire, the Lake District, Northumberland and Durham) with an explanation of their meaning and probable origin. The river-names are predominantly Celtic or Indo-European origin with their origins going back to the very distant past. There is also a scattering of later river-names of Viking and Anglo-Saxon origin. The inset map shows the distribution of the three major terms for a stream (burn, beck and brook) in the North which have Anglo-Saxon and Viking roots. Printed on luxury 250gsm paper and available in A3 or A2 format.
