After being brought to Britain from Asia during the beginning of the millennium, hemp became an incredibly valued crop. Hemp findings have been identified across the UK as far back as 400 CE in Roman and Anglo-Saxon sites, thus earning a name amongst our Trailblazer Collection in recognition of the pivotal year in which hemp saw widespread success across the UK and Europe.
