Treasure Chest Thursday - Logwood from the Mayflower

Here is a photo of some logwood that was possibly brought over on the Mayflower. We have the bundle that is in the photograph stored in an acid free box. There is a note in my grandmother's scrapbook that says: "Logwood for dying clothing brought over in the Mayflower 1620".

 Some interesting information about logwood can be found on Wayne's Word website
