Malgorzata Siennicka - Organizer

The general idea about the Tool Workshops is to share our knowledge about textile tools and techniques, and to discuss problems and difficulties we face with interpretations, functions and use of the textile tools we come across in our textile research. Our second meeting was devoted to textile, rope and mat impressions and imprints in clay. We discussed several case studies (e.g. Kültepe and Arslantepe), prepared our own imprints in clay, and studied them and other copies of original imprints under digital microscopes (Dino-Lite). Imprints and impressions belong to a very important class of objects found at many prehistoric sites and sometimes they are the only evidence of original textiles. Proper methods of examining, describing and documenting them is crucial for further studies on the imprinted textiles and mats.
