Yorkshire Historical Dictionary Launch Event

Posted on 2 January 2019

Friday 11 January 2019, 7.00pm to 8.45pm, Room RCH/037, Ron Cooke Hub

The Borthwick Institute welcomes Ian McMillan to the University to celebrate the launch of the Yorkshire Historical Dictionary with a talk about language, history, tradition and creativity. There will also be an opportunity for audience members to view a 360° digital installation created by University of York students and inspired by the dictionary’s contents. 

The Yorkshire Historical Dictionary is a fifteenth-month project funded by the Marc Fitch Fund in memory of Professor David Hey and in collaboration with Dr George Redmonds and the Yorkshire Archaeological and Historical Society. The dictionary provides free access to over 4,000 historical terms from documents relating to Yorkshire, collected by Dr George Redmonds over his sixty-year career, and covers the length and breadth of the historic county of Yorkshire, from c.1100 to c.1750. 

The dictionary can be explored online at yorkshiredictionary.york.ac.uk.
