Something and nothing


textiles in archaeo

I’ve come across bits of information about ancient textiles in miscellaneous archaeology reading, and as a knitter, sempstress and embroiderer I have a some practical knowledge too.  So I already knew a good deal of the information in here, and the information I didn’t know was given so briefly that I found myself waving my arms at the book and saying “And?  So how can you tell??  And how did they do it????”

The little Shire books are a good introduction to unfamilar topics, but they can be frustrating.  Moral: spend more and buy a much fatter book.
