I am curently using a noter made from 'bog oak' dredged from the River Trent in Nottinghamshire which may well have been growing about the time you mention !!! When I was first given the slab of timber, which in a width of about 20", did not show either pith or sapwood, I attempted to count the growth rings and gave up after 500, with still a long way to go !The wood is very black and hard, and the growth rings are close together and even, indicating a long period of constant dry growing conditions, and thus makes a good noter, unusual for oak which I would not normaly use for such a purpose,Sorry for the length of these two notes, it was good to see Robins post and your subsequent reply, what a diverse lot we dulcimer players are.LOLJohn

Thank you for your reply Michael. Like you I am sure that our predecessors were adept at working wood, I live not far from Glastonbury, which is situated on the Somerset 'levels' an area which in previous times was covered in water, and over the recent past work has shown that a complicated system of wooden causeways linked what were 'high' spots in the landscape, a form of timber engineering which must have required'edge' tools! Having tried to 'knapp' flint I have great admiration for those who obviously were better at it than I !!! I did manage to get a sharp edge, but without any of the artistry, and some sore fingers.Thank you for the friend invite, like you, I also 'double' on the hammered dulcimer, probably not so good a player on either type as you, but I came to music as a maker!My regardsJohn Grin.gif

Michael, some fascinating finds shown in your book, are there any firm indications as to what the 'Y' shaped flint (I am going to say found on page 5 of those shown) may have been used for? I wonder what the wastage might have been while knapping items like that!my regards'JohnH

Hey Michael--did you ever get away? It is even colder here--sleet ice and possibly snow predicted for 'Tallahassee tonight. :)
