At Garland, we love stories of string. Robyn McKenzie’s essay on string-figures is particularly memorable. This rich article from a publication about coastal cultures includes the story of how perfectly preserved papyrus rope was discovered in a man-made cave in the ancient Egyptian harbour of Saww. String-lovers will enjoy this.
