Throw back to 2014, I helped excavate 6 Romano British skeletons in flood conditions. The final skeleton that was recovered had 2 copper alloy bracelets and this, a complete decorated shale bracelet. It is early Roman and was still in situ around the wrist of a young female. #Archaeology#Roman#gravegoods
I love discovering knitted items in museums and learning their stories. These are the woolen hats of 17th century Dutch whalers. The patterns and colours were unique so their owner could easily be identified. They were so much a part of their identity that they were buried in them. . . #knittersofig#knittersofinstagram#knitstagram
All over the country there are activities about archaeology and our history this weekend.. This is a reconstruction from a early medieval grave (550 A.D) with gravegoods found in Holland. Bit proud of it, being involved with the excavation! Drawing of the man by Raf Timmermans.
Werk! Getting the fine details worked out on this figure, again. For the culture to be represented accurately, you are adding hours to your normal work time. The way these figures were crafted was pretty consistent and particular to each style. It's totally worth it though.
