Medieval urban toponymy in the duchy of Brabant, a mirror of urban development? (01P09208)

This research focuses on medieval town development within the former duchty of Brabant. Surprisingly often, identical toponyms appeared in medieval towns. It is my ambition to explain this intriguing phenomenon and to gain new insight in medieval town development and the multiple uses of public space.
