Notes for consulting the list and making selections
-- The list is organized by text and, within texts, alphabetically. Anonymous figures are given first, then named figures
-- Short titles for texts follow conventions used by the Dictionary of Old English (http://doe.utoronto.ca/pages/index.html)
-- Figures already claimed will be struck through; if a woman, text, or artifact isn't on the list and you'd like to write on it, please bring it to our attention
