I'm a historian and linguist. I edit and create Wikipedia articles as a way of building up my knowledge of topics I plan to write about: it'll usually be food history, language history, and ancient and medieval people. If you like, or don't like, what I write, please use my talk page on English Wikipedia, en:User talk:Andrew Dalby. Welcome, also, to my home page, A Food Word Site.
Here's a list of my books and papers, followed by books by others that I have cited in Wikipedia articles.
