Gaelic Vestiges in England
This is the parent page of those providing evidence of a Gaelic context in England (centred on the Dark Peak, South Pennines region, but applying to a far wider region, and archaically, it would seem, nationally) — as the derivation of place-names, names of and terms within remnants of ancient festivals, of key parts of vernacular speech, and of the great majority of well-known English idioms — consonant with Gaelic derivation of the Robin Hood and (King) Arthur monikers, thereby confirming that Gaelic etymology is apposite, and that the name derivations are likely to be accurate.
