This list is part of the residue from a discussion of the naming
of "Guilds" in the SCA.  I am aware that there are some social groups
in the Society that have not fallen prey to the ubiquitous "X-Guild"
naming style, but to show the rest, the following is a list of "Guild"
names that are from the period.
There is a difference between, but an overlapping of, Craft Guilds and 
Social Guilds, and it might well be that the members of one comprise the
membership of the other. Some towns had multiple guilds for the same craft.
Many of the guilds (ok, maybe 10%) allowed women to be members as well.
