Berwickshire Place Names Project at University of Glasgow
« on: Thursday 11 May 17 09:43 BST (UK) »
I just learned about "Recovering the Earliest English Language in Scotland”, an academic project hosted at the University of Glasgow. This is researching place names in Berwickshire specifically. The project runs between 2016 and 2018, and a number of academic outputs are planned.

See their website for full details, and news of the project’s progress:

For those interested in place-names, the Berwickshire Nats have recently published two booklets by Michael Braithwaite, 'Howes and knowes: an introduction to Berwickshire place-names (2016), and 'Hopes and Haughs: an introduction to Roxburghshire place-names (2017).
