Hello!

I registered at Wikipedia in November 2007, though I'd been making minor edits for about a year previously. I mostly write about the various literatures of the British Isles here, with detours into French literature, Celtic legend and folklore, medieval manuscripts, 11th-century English history, classical music, stained-glass artists, and the geography of north-west England. Some of the articles I've created are:



The complete list is here.


I also entirely rewrote these articles from the ground up:

Walter Scott Minstrelsy of the Scottish Border
Thomas Love Peacock The Misfortunes of Elphin
Wace Roman de Brut
Geoffrey of Monmouth Vita Merlini
Jonathan Oldbuck
