|Boiling Point No. 04 - March 1983 (ITDG Boiling Point, 1983)|
Yvonne Shanahan was to continue this article with a case study of a Kandyan village, and give an overall look at the implications for Extension of new stoves in Sri Lanka. Yvonne is about to visit Sri Lanka again, to continue with another aspect of village studies. Accordingly her article is postponed until the next Boiling Point so that the earlier studies can be reappraised in the light of a recent visit.

1. Additions to mud stove mixes besides sand and clay.
2. Experimental mixes for protective surface coverings of mud stoves (eg. Royer, page 11 "so far engine oil rubbed into the stove seems to be the most effective".
