Camels were quite common in Britain 13,000 year ago, our womenfolk then must have all had recipies for various camel dishes then ,
The little china funnel thingy me mum used to put in her pie dish when she made rabbit pie was probably passed down from generation to generation as folk memory of Camel pies.
This evidence suggests that it was the Dromadary that held sway in England and not the Bactrian.
Had the Bactrian been common the little china thingy would have been a sort of double thingy.
The men folk had it easier, they would lurk under the tree where the camel had its nest and biff them over the head when they came down to drink.
