The Herbalist

As part of the sries of workshops I do at Moyses Hall, the Herbalist is my favourite. There is so much information I can impart and some many visual clues, I can just go on and on forever! I was in the middle of a detailed description of something, hence the strange expression. My herbalist is based on the 10th/11th century records from Leechbooks and the like, so very early. And as only royalty or the church had the money/time/knowledge, I'm dressed as a Late Saxon abbess.

This photo was actually taken at West Stow, but the display is exactly the same.
