Abstract:

An original study revealing the history of place-names from Ireland to
Anatolia, from Scotland to the Apennines, and from to Andalusia the Black
Seas.   Includes numerous original maps and uncovers new methodology for
linguistic geography.   
Uses a dataset of over 20,000 names recorded by Greek and Latin authors
such as Polybius, Caesar and Tacitus and by early geographers such as
Strabo, Pliny, Ptolemy and the Ravenna Cosmographer. A significant work for
archaeologists, historians and philologists studying the early distribution
of Celtic and other Indo-European languages.
