Default [Dixonary] rnd 3033 RUDISTS, results

Well, what an interesting round - the real definition was a major reef
forming bivalve which became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period
- ie #2 - 3 people voted for it thus giving me a D3

Benj Evans long offering takes the honours with a 7*and so he is the
next dealer (anyone will offer to help if you need to ask). Debbie E is
the actual winner with a natural 5

I hope I have scored this correctly - by hand as my other mc is
currently down and it has my software* - all errors are mine but I hope
that there aren't any

Over to you Benj,

an early 19th century Northumbrian circle of Romantic thinkers who most
notably vilified formal education, particularly grammar schools,
espousing rather the ideal of the innately good child in the vein of
Rousseau and Wm. Blake, among others. The Rudists took great inspiration
from Wordsworth’s poem, “The Tables Turned”, published in his
influential 1798* Lyrical Ballads in which he writes, “let nature be
your teacher”. Among their number were average-adjuster and poet Edward
Irving Todd (1790?-1861), notorious for his 1825 poem "Lady Grammar,
Damn Her!", George Thomas Rudd (1795-1847), clergyman and founder of the
Royal Entomological Society, and Durham wool merchant Paul Hood
(1786-1846). Not to be confused with the Roodists, 18th century
Calvinist ministers who favored a simple crucifix over the complete
abstention from church adornment practiced by their peers
