Place Name Football League

Welcome to the Big Heritage football place-name league!

Britain is a place rich in history and archaeology with even the names of our villages and towns often thousands of years old. Lots of our place names derive from the Early Middle Ages (AD 410 – 1066) but some are later and many trace their roots into prehistory!

We’ve devised these tables for a bit of fun, with data taken from the Institute of Name Studies - the football data is 'live' so tables will update as Premier League and Championship games are played. See if you can work out the name of the team's below from their origins:

Book a Big Heritage school workshop or alternatively contact us to discuss how we can use history & archaeology to engage your clients, sell your products or bring your community closer together.
