Colors of the medieval world


Credit (for the photo and the craftsmanship) to Rowena Dugdale (@redrubyrose), who notes that these are "Plant dyes - all the colours achievable from leaf, flower and root within around a five mile radius. The red hot poker root was a gift from a friend on Skye but that’s only several miles across the water…"

  1. Linking the original tweet here since I don't see it in an (admittedly brief) looksee of the Reddit comments and OP has some other really interesting content!

    So is this your original photo? It's been circulating online quite a bit and a few of us have been looking for the original poster.

    Thanks, yes this is my original post - it has been doing quite an anonymous road trip around the web the last few days.

  3. Post amended accordingly. I do get lazy sometimes in tracking down original credits (especially on football Saturdays).

  4. If you post original content and don't identify yourself in the post, you'll likely lose ownership. There are plenty of attention whores who look for things they can claim.
