    Excellent as always, Dr. H!

    “This … also demonstrates one of the great dangers of archaeology, not to life and limb, although that does sometimes take place – no: I’m talking about folklore…”

  2. Excellent. Love the drawings and subtle use of colour.

    PS How about the Rillaton Cup, my favourite archaeological folklore story.

      Thank you Katy. I’ve been thinking about doing the Rillaton Cup, but I have to practice drawing horses first! I will get round to it, though. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Any suggestions for archaeology-related folklore with some narrative detail would be great. Thanks!

    So cool!
    I like the touches of color too—reminds me of Edward Gorey’s stage set for Dracula, all black and white except for one red item–a brooch or a rose or some such thing…

      Thanks Fresca. I just saw the Gorey sets at the Gothic exhibition at the British Library a few weeks ago. I was very tempted to buy a reproduction copy in the book shop.
      I grew up with a lot of story/ picture books that just used black and one colour. I’m still trying to get the hang of using colour, but it’s fun to play about with.
