Jacobite Tartans

I’m surprised that there’s nothing on the website about tartans connected to the Jacobite era or Prince Charles Edward in particular. Is there a particular reason for this? I have written papers on a number of such pieces: they are available on my website.

At the moment I am working on a project to collate the disparate fragments of the plaid left by the Prince at Moy Hall which the eventual aim or making an accurate reconstruction. I wonder if it is possible to discuss this project via the website (on the research page?) which may hopefully turn up some additional specimens amongst member.
