As the title indicates, I find the nitpicking over weft v warp somewhat tedious. They are just words for the two sets of threads mutually at right angles, and even if I have confused the two – which I’m willing … Continue reading
Links to my immediate three-part response to Thibault Heimburger’s critique of the scorch hypothesis
Thibault’s critique (with an artistic touch or two…) My response in three separate instalments; Part 1 Link Part 2 Link Part 3 Link Given that’s quite a slug of information and argument/rebuttal there. I guess some kind of summary … Continue reading
