Notes to process

"the page on George Silver lists his nationality as British which is incorrect as his Nationality was English asthe formation of Great Britain as a geographical place or kingdom had not yet occurred (1707). The is also mention in the page of Silvers urge to demonstrate the superiority of his 'British arts' - yet in his book he make no mention of British arts only English arts. This may all seem like semantics , but national identity in the United Kingdom is a very important thing where accuracy is very important"
