Dear Forum members
I thought Id make a general post to ask any stalkers, in the vicinity of Eastbourne, whether or not they would be willing to donate their deer skins (Fallow and Roe are the main species round here) to me. Id also appreciate the heads it they are available.
I do a lot of experimental archaeology and I brain tan the skins (hence the request for heads too).
It is only really practical if they are relatively close to Eastbourne but I could usually make a collection the same day I am notified of one being available. No preparation is required by you, just as the skin comes off the animal.
I can explain the process more fully face to face with anyone, if they are interested, but as I know a lot of skins merely go into the bin, one could describe it as being just a little bit more recycling one can do .
