Deerskin Map

From: Prudence Backman <pbackman>
Date: Thursday, June 8, 2000
One of our local governments has a map drawn and illustrated on
deerskin. The deerskin which is 4 ft by  5 ft. appears to be in good
shape, still supple and not flaking. She is wondering about the best
method for storing the map. Can she file it with other maps? Should
she roll it, hang it, store flat? What materials would be best to
use? Any advice you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
