It's all very jolly, but it reminds me of Rambling Sid Rumpo (Kenneth Williams in "Round the Horne") as he nurked his cordwangler and wurdled his artefacts. The late Peter Bellamy (great folksinger and composer) used to say of our traditions that the daft ones have survived, but the useful ones (he specified the giving of dowries, which he said would have come in handy twice in his life) have all but disappeared. Loom powder, anybody?

I’d be interested to know the source for the archaeological angle Dan. I’ve not come across that one before.
