Reconstructing Textiles and their History: Egyptian Fabrics from the 1st Millennium AD at the National Museum of Denmark
The workshop “Reconstructing Textiles and their History: Egyptian Fabrics from the 1st Millennium AD at the National Museum of Denmark” will take place online on 26 March 2022. It will present the results of the research carried out in the framework of the project RECONTEXT: Reconstructing the history of Egyptian textiles from the 1st Millennium AD at the National Museum of Denmark. The overall aim of the project is to establish a history of the Egyptian textiles collection at the National Museum of Denmark: reconstructing the way the objects are acquired, their provenance, as well as their original look and shape. The history of this collection is an excellent example of how European museums acquired textiles from Egypt.
The RECONTEXT project is led by Dr M. Mossakowska-Gaubert and funded by two Danish foundations: Louis-Hansens Fond and Beckett Fonden. Hosted by the Centre for Textile Research (CTR) – Saxo Institute: University of Copenhagen, the project is conducted in close collaboration with the National Museum of Denmark.
