Tinder Box!

Have you ever wondered how a tinder box works? I have, ever since reading the scene in Georgette Heyer's The Foundling where the Duke of Sale sets his prison on fire. (Go, Gilly!)

Anyway, Maria Grace posted a great video where a cook at Hampton Court shows how it works. To watch it, go here.
