were made in period and still available in a form like, or close to,
that of the past. >>>

There are various such lists and commentary in this Florilegium file.
cheese-msg       (124K)  3/28/04    Medieval cheese. Recipes.

The problem comes in deciding whether just the name or the name and  
the cheese date from period. In particular it is difficult to know  
with cheeses named after places. I remember in particular arguments  
about whether the cheddaring process was period or post period. The  
town of cheddar is period. I think these are records of cheddar  
cheese, but is the modern cheddar cheese the same as the period  
cheddar cheese.

Anyway, there are several such lists in that file, compiled by  
different people.
