3 Mention must here be made of the great debt which all students of this topic and the compilers of the map owe to Professor Ekwall’s English Place-names in -ing (Lund, 1923). He did not however attempt to date his material by comparison with that of the archaeologists, and his suggestion that the ‘-ingas’ names as a whole are ‘not much later than c. 500’ (p. 115) has not commanded universal assent for it depends upon the acceptance of the traditional story of the West Saxon advance from Southampton Water. See below, p. 464, for further treatment of this aspect of the question.
