Abstract
Unmaking is an allegory of the alchemical process through the tale of a medieval hunt. It combines symbolic alchemical language with the scientific method established in both alchemy and hunting in the medieval and early modern period, and presents this research as a “speculative” historical fiction. That is to say, if the coded procedure present in the manuscripts was the way to achieve alchemy, then Unmaking is what that process might look like.
