  Geography of England - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
England comprises the central and southern two-thirds of the island of Great Britain, plus offshore islands of which the largest is the Isle of Wight.
Most of England consists of rolling hills, but it is more mountainous in the north with a chain of low mountains, the Pennines, dividing east and west.
The list of England's largest cities is much debated because in British English the normal meaning of city is "a continuously built-up urban area"; these are hard to define and various other definitions are preferred by some people to boost the ranking of their own city.

 H-Net Review: Graeme Wynn on The Relations of History and Geography: Studies in England, France and the United States
Darby is probably best known among those interested in medieval England for his leadership of the massive Domesday project--a careful reconstruction of the geography of England late in the eleventh century, that stretched to seven enormous volumes published between 1952 and 1977--and by others for his two volumes on
They are, for the record, "The Geography behind History," "Past Geographies," "The History behind Geography," and "The Historical Element in Geography." These chapters are the texts of lectures that Darby delivered in a University of London seminar between 1954 and 1966, and subsequently to students in a third-year course at Cambridge (1966-76).
In discussing historical geography in France, Darby quotes Lucien Febvre: "To act on his environment, man does not place himself outside it." For Darby, the historian Febvre was simply the apostle of "possibilism," an advocate of human agency in opposition to the views of environmental determinists, and he made little of this assertion.

This paper reviews the development of British historical geography, and of regional and local approaches to economic and social history, over the last eighty years, and shows how GIS-based techniques enable us to extract new meaning from historical sources and answer research questions which could only be imperfectly explored with traditional techniques.
While most recent writing in historical geography has adopted a post-modern perspective, emphasising the cultural and the most recent past, British social, economic and demographic historians have increasingly emphasised the regional and the spatial.
While these studies are arguably far more grounded in geographical context and more sophisticated in their jutaxposition of different sources than the studies discussed in the first part of the paper, the sheer complexity of the material makes the argument hard to follow when the evidence is presented purely linearly,on paper.
