2000, certainly not! It had been kept in a closed jar fortunately,
otherwise I wouldn't have used it, but there was no visible signs of
spoilage and smelt quite fine! Very tasty it was too, cooked with a
beef and bean stew.

clan would have become part of the knowledge of the common religion.
After all it seems very likely that the lightbringers would have had a
Flesh Man representative with them even though I don't recall a
specific mention in the story.
Other clans would benefit, perhaps even Heortling clans. The transfer
of knowledge need not have been entirely one-way and when it says the
Hagolings told their own survival story it implies that it was not.
I am less clear whether Flesh Man ever was the common magic religion
this far north or whether there were two common magic religions with
an amount of cross-fertilisation of ideas. The lists of talents for
the Heortlings and Tarshites are remarkably similar.
