Save the date: Textiles matters
24. Februar - 25. Februar
The everyday utensils of former agriculture oriented settlements around the prehistoric lakeside were, to a large extent, textile products of the natural environment. Functional textiles were used in everyday subsistence which likewise helped the settlement carry out tasks that were indispensable in the context of sedentary lifestyles.
Perhaps a little provocative but essentially the question arises as to what extent sedentariness would have been possible without textiles simply because there is, so far, no other material that is as versatile as textile raw material.
This particular theme is part of the joint project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Germany for 2019 to 2021 (www.THEFBO.de).
In this context there will be an online conference, that take place between 24-25 February 2021.
