Its not far from either me or C_A.....

[EDIT] The guy who seems to have identified this sling is based at Manchester University. How is that for a stroke of luck? I am pursuing inquiries....

any pics - roman leather from that period tends to be few and far between and generally a bit 'dog eared' lol

Roman fort in the peak distraict eh ?

For a moment I thought you said, "riddled with old farts." Course that may be true too.

I second C_A's question. Are there any pics of the Sling, or failing that an online Source for the entire article??????

I also noticed that the gent in question seems to be a textile expert, so maybe we actually have the remnants of a woven and braided sling from the roman period, (DROOLING)
