Michele talked about one of the YE Luttrell Psalter creatures and explained how it had been made.

Had an email from Norma to let us know that our Bonnets are displayed along with 50 odd others in the Drill Hall this week. The Lincoln Mystery Players are performing the Timberlake Wertenbaker Play 'Our Country's Good', which is all about the First Fleet and a Transportation Boat and a journey to Australia.
