There are many days we can celebrate as our birthday and today is one of them. Three years ago today was the first public announcement of the Dictionary..
In the last three years, we have published seven editions (with a new one due very soon), and our editorial team has created entries for almost 60,000 citations. (That’s 55 citations entered per day. Every day, for three years.) Our staff have appeared on the radio twice, and news of the Dictionary has been taken up in popular media on Mental Floss (23 Hipster Baby Name Ideas From The Dictionary of Medieval Names) and io9 (For all your medieval world-building needs: Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources.)
It’s been quite a ride. We look forward to year four!
