This volume looks in detail at textiles in the ancient world and is based on a conference held in Denmark and Sweden in March 2003. Section one, Production and Organisation, takes a chronological look through more than four thousand years of history, from Syria in the mid-third millennium BC, to seventeenth-century Germany. Section two, Crafts and Technology, focuses on the relationship between the primary producer (the craftsman) and the secondary receiver (the archaeologist/conservator). The third section, Society, examines the symbolic nature of textiles, and their place within ancient societal groups. Throughout the book, emphasis is placed on the universality of textiles and the importance of information exchange between scholars from different disciplines.Nosch, Marie-Louise B. is the author of 'Ancient Textiles Production, Crafts, And Society', published 2007 under ISBN 9781842172025 and ISBN 1842172026.
