Would you be interested in my leaflet about dyestuffs from the 1st century? the plants in it are indigenous to the UK and can still be grown and used...I wrote it for one of my Ancient Technology sessions.

Yours

Would it be suitable for the main site - I think it would be brilliant on there.

By the way I can't get your link to work.
