This unusual (and beautiful) book/journal consists of a series of very poetic texts (some derived from medieval works, and others reading not unlike a Ted Hughes poem), together with photographs of "temporary ritual assemblages" of items like farm tools put together to resemble ritual artefacts, constructed by artist Richard Skelton.
It was published by Lakeland Arts to coincide with an exhibition, Memorious Earth: A Longitudinal Study, held at Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal, Cumbria, in 2015.
Richard Skelton runs Corbel Stone Press, along with poet Autumn Richardson.
The work of the Notional Research Group for Cultural Artefacts seems to have a certain amount in common with that of radical folklorists the Folklore Tapes.
