Cloth Cultures in and Beyond the Viking Age
Representatives from Centre for Textile Research at the University of Copenhagen, the National Museum of Denmark, University of Uppsala, the Swedish History Museum Stockholm and Museum of Cultural History, University of Oslo have established the Scandinavian research network Cloth Cultures in and Beyond the Viking Age for front-line investigations and disseminations of scientific studies of clothing, household textiles, textiles for warfare and trade. The network offer state-of-the-art knowledge with analysis of material evidence as well as written sources, and a forum for discussion and dissemination.
Many Scandinavian research institutions, museums, universities and other arenas for dissemination possess each in their way knowledge about Viking Age textiles and clothing, craft technologies, and knowhow about the significance of textiles and textile production. The Network will unify this scattered research geographically, institutional and across disciplines. The main objective is to strengthen historical/archaeological textile research by sharing knowledge, and developing and integrating new theories and methods in this research field.
