Badger, I hope it is the right place to post this, I couldn't find anywhere better...

ahem, I am preparing a poster & presentation for my exams in Jan.

Chosen subject is "Biodiversity and Herbal Medicine".

I was pointed in the direction of the Silphion Project, which should be operating in the Leeds area in the UK.

Unfortunately, I cannot find much about this project and am starting to believe it is dead.

Does any of you on here know about this project?

If you don't not to worry!

Do I vaguely remember from the dim & distant past "the Hairy one" hails from around those parts...

Could be wrong...

I am currently loitering around the Leeds area, but I have never heard of the project in question...
