Event Details


Flax and its use from ancient and modern times.

28th March at 10.30am


Flax has been cultivated and used in many countries over the ages principally for fibre (linen), seed, and oil. Linen cloth spun, woven and dyed, was used for thousands of years before paper and printed records for royal, religious, funerary and ceremonial purposes.

For many, the fibre represented currency, bartered in trade from country to country, prior to the development of money or coin currency.

 The Rare Book Discussion Group meetings are held in a small group environment (maximum of 24) and draw on the resources of the internationally acclaimed library collection of the Royal Geographical Society of SA.  Why not join us and get up close to this wonderful collection? 

This event is free for members of the RGSSA.  Non-members are welcome to attend and tickets are available for $10 per person.  Book on line through this site.  The RGSSA welcomes new members who wish to make a contribution to the success of the society.
