Talk: Ancient Textiles Unlocked

Chapter House, Exeter Cathedral, Cathedral Green, EX1 1HS
Thu 8th November 2018 12:30PM

With Julia Hopkin (University of Exeter Researcher)

Ever wondered how people in the past made their clothes? And how we know what they did? This talk is a basic introduction to the many techniques ancient people used to construct practical, comfortable and beautiful textiles. Julia Hopkin combines craft demonstrations and archaeological expertise to take you through the history of textiles in Europe, from their appearance in the Stone Age to the advent of mechanised production in the Medieval period, and how they can be reconstructed from archaeological evidence. Tickets £5 (Look out for a practical workshop to accompany this talk - details and date on the website).
