A submitted article in the principal journal of general Celtic scholarship, accepted without major revision, reviewing previous scholarship on this difficult Romano-British place-name and claiming that it meant, in British Celtic, 'place of a man named Crooked-Hand'. This piece is representative of a major strand of the author's work on the survival of Celtic place-names in what is now English-speaking territory. According to Professor Geraint H. Jenkins, Director of the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies): 'No self-respecting Celtic scholar can afford to neglect Studia Celtica: it lies at the cutting edge of international scholarship.'
