Spin me a Yarn, Weave Me a Tale: Textiles, Women and Cloth in Iceland, AD 874-1800
Unlike most parts of the world, archaeological textile collections from Iceland are abundant, rich, and diverse. Though largely unstudied, they contain important information about Iceland’s past and especially the roles that women played. This talk by Michèle Hayeur Smith (Haffenreffer Museum) will present results of ongoing research on textiles from sites across Iceland from (AD 873) to the late 18th century. Spons by the Friends of Haffenreffer Museum.
