Historic Yorkshire Dictionary Project

  • Posted On: 11 February 2018

Introducing the Yorkshire Historic Dictionary

The society is delighted to be part of a ground-breaking collaboration with Dr George Redmonds and The Borthwick Institute for Archives, University of York, to develop a dictionary of historic Yorkshire terms. The project is funded by the Marc Fitch Fund, in memory of Prof. David Hey, a major figure in English local history and a great friend of Dr Redmonds and of YAHS.

Over a 60-year career, Dr Redmonds has amassed a catalogue of 90,000 terms and phrases.


The outcome will be a dictionary published in the YAHS Record Series, and an online interactive version. The project archivist, Alexandra Medcalf, started work in November and is based at the Borthwick. Look out for her regular tweets on the Borthwick blog [link to http://borthwickinstitute.blogspot.co.uk].
