Lit. 'waste (land)'. References in *DB to vasta have been taken to refer to land laid waste by William I's armies, e.g. in Sussex before the Battle of Hastings, and Yorkshire after the *harrying of the North. 'Waste', however, can also indicate land which did not produce an income (for example, because it was exempt) or for which no information was forthcoming.
