Helpful advice - many thanks. I will certainly hand-draw the one map that is
planned. I don't think anyone is expecting these places to remain secret
indefinitely but I think they're a little concerned that I'll be doing the
equivalent of shouting the locations from the rooftops to a large and perhaps new
audience. I suppose I should be pleased that the consensus is that I'll sell
more than half a dozen copies.
I have promised to send the final draft to the archaeology service for their
opinion before it goes to the printers - however I would like to get the
balance right first time if possible.
