Kindle Definitions continued

I've been reading Ivanhoe on the Kindle. It was written in 1812 and the story was set long before that. There are many archaic terms used in the book, for example: kirtle, dingle and baldric. I probably wouldn't have bothered looking those up if I was reading the book in print but it was nice and easy on the Kindle. Not that these are likely to come up in conversation, even here in Cambridge.
