The penny dropped with 9dn and have filled most of the unclued ones but don't know how another ethnic minority can find the ones without a first letter viz 14dn and 44ac. Any help appreciated.

I feel sure that if you googled appropriately, you would find lists. Or there is a good crossword solver site at The Universal Crossword Solver which does give place names when you key in the letters that you have

Well, that wasn't much fun. As sudokulover said, a real slog, especially in that corner.
AJT, that must have been a breeze. What a coincidence re the cooker. ;-)

Down to one letter in 38d. Assume it's "n". "Blow upset"? Never seen it used as a noun, but Chambers has it.
Can anyone explain the "half" missing in 3d?

Hi Zardoz

38D - appears to be nuts
3D - this is the best I can come up with....

Lutetia (also Lutetia Parisiorum in Latin, Lukotekia before, in French Lutèce) was a town in pre-Roman and Roman Gaul. The Gallo-Roman city was a forerunner of the re-established Merovingian town that is the ancestor of present-day Paris. Lutetia and Paris have little in common save their position where an island, the Île de la Cité, created a convenient ford of the Seine
