We recently came across an interesting Nordic website, which has some very interesting articles on textiles and archaeology. It belongs to Viveka Hansed , a professional textile historian.
"The chosen path for my education in textile history is rare and based on a symbiosis of practical textile training within the Swedish Handicraft Association, theoretical work and academic studies primarily in the humanity subjects. Through the years I have completed further theoretical research in European collections, first and foremost in the United Kingdom and the Nordic countries. Added with textile experiments – in the areas of historical weaving, dyeing, needlework, knitting, plaiting and lace – so in the best possible way be able to develop new contexts for questions related to my work."
If you have an interest in this area, or even just a bit of free time, we highly recommend reading some of her articles!
