Three talks by W. G . Hoskins
Reader in Economic History in the University of Oxford
' By the end of the nineteenth century,' says Dr. Hoskins, ' it must have seemed that everything to be discovered in England had been discovered,' and exploration was in the doldrums. But 'in the last thirty years or so there has been a remarkable widening of the field of exploration, in the realms of place-names, of architectural history, landscape history, and in the work of geographers upon settlement patterns or upon the topography and growth of certain English towns.' It is of the literature produced by this new advance that Dr. Hoskins speaks.
