England (Scope note)

English place names are split into modern counties (as used from 1996 onwards) and archaic counties (as used before 1974). All places should appear under both a modern and an archaic county Broad Term, although this is still a work in progress. The counties created in 1974 and abolished in 1996, such as Avon, should not be used, except as a Non-Preferred (Use For) term.
