Abstract: This series of annual lectures, generously funded by Jack Leighton, has been used skilfully over the years to encourage scholars who are not specialists in Staffordshire history to devote some attention to the county’s past. In this case an outsider’s comparative perspective is being focussed on Staffordshire’s early towns, with the purpose of assessing their importance in terms of the numbers of towns and their inhabitants, and in making some judgement of the changes associated with their growth.
