All these items, laid out and ready to be packed, are items from my basic expedition kit. They include essentials such as a penknife, climbing rope, a carabiner and a compass. Wildlife monitoring objects – binoculars and a pencil to spot pods of dolphins or soaring eagles. Items to battle the elements – snow goggles, and gloves in a bright shade of yellow so that they may be useful in an avalanche. An ice axe for walking, climbing and stopping oneself from falling. A bandana – something all seasoned travellers should carry, for protective use against the sun, wind, cold, to compliment a rosy cheek or to cover ones head when needed. A fishing hook and twine, and if that fails, Kendal mint cake for high-energy emergency sugar.     
Ermantrude’s Kit is a special project to celebrate the holidays. The 100% wool scarf 65cm x 65cm is available to purchase for £95. Contact info@charlottelinton.com for more information or visit www.facebook.com/CharlotteLintonScarves

I am visiting my brother Hubert in New York where he works as an Anthropologist at the American Museum of Natural History. As a zoologist I have particularly enjoyed the Diarama’s - windows of stuffed animals set in scenes of their natural habitats however I have also been fascinated by the Hall of the North West Coast Indians - Hubert’s favourite spot. The hall is the oldest display in the museum and has hardly changed since its creation in 1900. The artefacts were collected by Franz Boas, often referred to as the Father of American Anthropology and features woven baskets, incredible ceremonial masks, every day implements for fishing and cooking and huge great carved totem poles.

As the Autumn begins to move in, Charlie and I are heading South to London to concentrate on some much overdue papers. Our time in Scotland has been truly wonderful, what a brilliant and ancient land!
