The Survival, Origin and Mathematics of String Figures

Welcome

The purpose of GuineaFlower.org is to put back online Mr. Martin Probert's account of The Survival, Origin and Mathematics of String Figures.

 

This is work of c. 1998 - 2003, and the last light revision was made in 2013. The original appearance of The Website is retained.

 

In 2018 there appeared Mr. Martin Probert's study of The String Figures of Malawi. Any supplementary material will also appear here.

 

GuineaFlower.org is called after one of the many evocative names for the Snake's-head Fritillary (fritillaria meleagris).
