I believe that Michael Ryder has more or less retired from active research in
fibres. I do not know whether anyone else is carrying on his work; he may be
able to suggest someone else for the Museum to contact.
A few months ago he donated some of his books to the Zooarchaeology Library at
Southampton, as he was anticipating moving, and he may already have moved. I
can give Kate Hunter his (possibly now old) address if she contacts me.
