That's an interesting point Dave. The odd thing is, that over the years of reading I've never noticed and still understood. The most obvious one that has been mentioned here before is 'hotted'.
All the one's I've come across I've checked in my Shorter Oxford dictionary (an edition from the 1980/90s) and none of them have been marked 'archaic'. I'll compile a list to post here and show it to a friend of mine who is 98 and see what she thinks.
