Vision of Britain | Administrative Units Typology | Changing frameworks for local government: "Our system for classifying British administrative units is designed as an extension to the Alexandria Digital Library's gazetteer Feature Type Thesaurus, but that contains only four terms for intra-state political units so the first expansion is from their four to our seven Geographical Levels. The next expansion is to our Unit Type values, and the final one to our type-specific Unit Status values ('World', 'State' and 'Nation' are both Geographical Levels and Unit Types). NB a given type of unit may hold more than one status value concurrently. The list is generated for you by querying the live database. Click on any term for more details."

another example from the the text of the Victoria County History

Creech St. Michael: Local government | British History Online

British History Online: "is the digital library containing some of the core printed primary and secondary sources for the medieval and modern history of the British Isles. Created by the Institute of Historical Research and the History of Parliament Trust, we aim to support academic and personal users around the world in their learning, teaching and research.

With so much material now being published on the world wide web in either un-reviewed form, or in fee-based services, the IHR has shown its commitment to promoting the study of history by publishing these priceless resources for their historical value, cross-searchable, in one place and free of charge."
