We are excited to share the first in a series of videos about textiles and textile production in Bronze Age Greece. These videos are made for the educational project ‘Artefacts, Creativity, Technology, and Skills from Prehistory to the Classical Period in Greece. Communities of Learning in the Past and in Higher Education Today’ (ACTS) funded by the 4EU+ Alliance and the Erasmus+ programme.
This project creates a new platform of innovative research-based teaching that integrates teachers and students from four 4EU+ Universities: Heidelberg, Charles, Copenhagen and Warsaw. In this video, Dr hab. Agata Ulanowska from the Faculty of Archaeology, University of Warsaw discusses textile raw materials.
