We were part of a team lead by Raiders Traders and Invaders, including Wordsmith Crafts and Visiting Vikings, showing how the Lindisfarne Gospels were made. We supplied equipment and materials for iron gall ink making, and had a display and activity showing how the coloured pigments were made. The second day was exciting as the weather closed in, the site was flooded, and three tents blew down. This is what they had to say:
I have finally landed back at home and can reply to you properly. I’d like to say a big thank you for the display you put on for the public , your level of commitment and depth of knowledge. I would also like to thank you for helping out in a crisis, when things didn’t go to plan you were there to help me sort things out and to do ‘damage limitation’.
