Textiles in Archaeology

Author: John Peter Wild
Publisher: Shire Publications
ISBN: UVA:X001433204
Release Date: 1988

Only certain environmental conditions permit the preservation of textiles, such as the peat bogs of northwest Europe and the arid deserts of Egypt. In this short guide to textiles in archaeology Wild explains the processes involved in textile manufacture, from sheep to finished garment. He examines the implements associated with textile production that are more commonly found on archaeological sites, different types of fibres and how they are prepared, techniques of spinning and weaving, dyeing and needlework. Examples dating from the Neolithic to the medieval period are drawn from Britain and northwest Europe in particular.

"This collection of essays chronicles the diversity and richness of one broad category of traditional material culture - fiber industries or textiles - among prehistoric and historic Native Americans in eastern North America. Such industries, which include basketry, fabrics, cordage, and netting, played an important role in the economic, social, and ceremonial life of indigenous cultures. However, because of the extreme age of the artifacts, their fragile nature, and unfavorable preservation conditions, knowledge of these industries has long been incomplete - resulting in a gap in scholarship that this volume does much to address."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Handbook for British and Irish Archaeology

Author: Cherry Lavell
ISBN: UOM:39015050179640
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Social Science

How do states distinguish friends from enemies, partners from competitors, and communities from outsiders? Community Under Anarchy shows how the development of common social identities among political elites can lead to deeper, more cohesive forms of cooperation than what has been previously envisioned by traditional theories of international relations. Drawing from recent advances in social theory and constructivist approaches, Bruce Cronin demonstrates how these cohesive structures evolve from a series of discrete events and processes that help to diminish the conceptual boundaries dividing societies. Community Under Anarchy supports this thesis through a new and original interpretation of the Concert of Europe, the Holy Alliance, and the political integration of Italy and Germany. In the wake of the upheavals created by the French Revolution and the revolutions of 1848, political elites helped to validate new forms of governance by creating transnational reference groups from which they could draw legitimacy. As a result, European states were able to overcome the polarizing effects of anarchy and create a concert system, a common security association, and two amalgamated security communities. The empirical cases demonstrate how socially derived identities can shape state preferences and create new roles for state leaders.
