Pick any spot in the British Isles and you're sure to find a touch of local color, as this authoritative guide so entertainingly demonstrates. The authors have selected 7,500 of the most interesting places and place-names, from Ashby-de-la-Zouch (scene of "Ivanhoe"'s unforgettable joust), to Wetwang, where builders recently discovered the 2,300-year-old grave of an Iron Age woman who was buried with a chariot. Tourists, scholars, and armchair travelers will revel in fascinating facts on everything from what's odd about the name "Avon River" to why Brits say "God bless the Duke of Argyle " when someone scratches an itch.
