Non-SCA writing on related topics

I also write about medieval and history topics outside of the SCA environment. My particular interests are English onomastics, medieval sports and games, and culinary history. Here are some of the other projects I've worked on that might be of interest to SCA folk.

  • Dunlap, Wendi A. Surnames and Society in West Yorkshire: An Analysis of Names in the Wakefield Court Rolls, 1274-1352. MA Thesis, California State University Dominguez Hills, 2010.
  • Dunlap, Wendi A. "Stool Ball." In Sports Around the World: History, Culture, and Practice, J. Nauright (ed.). Published by ABC-CLIO in 2012.
  • Dunlap, Wendi A. Middle English Surnames in West Yorkshire. Three Beacons Press, 2013.
  • Resurrected Recipes, a blog about historic cooking (not restricted to medieval cooking), particularly the interpretation and testing of historic recipes, but also addressing kitchen technology.

Other related projects

I created a Mac app to simplify my research in the Middle English Dictionary by depaginating long results lists and opening directly to the pages that show full citations. If you are one of the people who would find that useful, and you use a Mac, you can download the app here.

Be warned -- it is a bit slow sometimes. But it is still useful if you frequently use the MED.
