In this month’s update we continue our video series, featuring textile specialist Dr Susanna Harris, focusing on the different fibres and fabrics from the Must Farm pile-dwelling.
The Must Farm Textiles: Part Five – Twining
Our fifth episode on the fibres and fabrics from Must Farm focuses on twining. This technique is generally unfamiliar to us today. What artefacts might have been created using this technique?
The Must Farm Textiles: Part Six – Fibre Bundles
The sixth entry in our series examining Must Farm’s textiles explores fibre bundles. These rare finds are a very important component of the assemblage and show that different stages of fabric production were present at the site.
The Must Farm Textiles: Part Seven – Yarns
In the final part of our video series on Must Farm’s fibres and fabrics Dr Susanna Harris discusses the yarns from the site. These fantastic finds, including delicate balls of thread, are helping us unravel more information about fibre production during the Late Bronze Age.
