“In Ethnology, as in other sciences, nothing is too insignificant to receive attention. Indeed it is a matter of common experience among scientists that apparently trivial objects or operations have an interest and importance that are by no means commensurate with the estimation in which they are ordinarily held.

To the casual observer few amusements offer, at first sight, a less promising field for research than does the simple string figures of our childhood; and, indeed, it is only when the comparative method is applied to it that we begin to discover that they, too, have an important place in the cultural history of man”

Alfred C. Haddon, Cambridge, England, July 1905
