Jonathan Masters

Jonathan is an ESRC funded PhD student in History at Lancaster University, working on a CASE studentship in collaboration with Lancashire County Archives. His research examines the social and economic development of medieval Lancashire from the evidence of increasing agroeconomic activity and its impact on the landscape of coastal and low lying regions of south west Lancashire during the period 1150 to 1550. This study specifically analyses the use of minor place-names recorded in title deeds as evidence of significant change in landscape through socio-economic practice.
