funnily enough the main motivation for all the pics, apart from them being pretty decent shots and relevant to UK knapping was they were on Flickr with a creative common license, so at least for the logo this site has non stolen images. However if you send me a shot of yourself digging about in the mud, I'll happily replace him. lol!

Ahhh, the joys of knapping frost damaged flint(?). I found a bit of flint in a customer's garden (ex rockery), took one hit at it and ended up with about 100 tiny, totally unknappible pieces.lol!

Ok it's been a while now, hopefully everyone thinks the change is an improvement, if not let me know. I chose lime green as my favourite colour, increased the font size way above normal forum size to for ease of reading, especially among older readers, created a logo that explains the forum in pictures visually, but worry that it maybe a bit BNP. I'd appreciate honest criticism. Is there anything I can improve, change fonts, colours ect, pics, logo and so on? cheers.
