Call for Papers. DYNAMICS AND ORGANISATION OF TEXTILE PRODUCTION IN PAST SOCIETIES IN EUROPE AND THE MEDITERRANEAN, Łódź, 21-22 June, 2017
Call for papers. THE 3rd YOUNG RESEARCHERS’ CONFERENCE IN AEGEAN ARCHAELOGY
Sympozjum Egejskie. Papers in Aegean Archaeology is a new, peer-reviewed series created and edited by Katarzyna Żebrowska, Agata Ulanowska, and Kazimierz Lewartowski as a platform presenting and introducing a broad scope of new research approaches and themes, as well as the newcomers to the discipline, i.e. these authors who are at the beginning of their research career in the field of Aegean Archaeology. We hope that this series will serve as a concise guide presenting the most recent research interests undertaken by early career scholars, as well as new trends in archaeology of the Bronze Age Aegean.

Syndesmoi 5: International Course in Archaeology. “Papers in Mediterranean Archaeology”, edited by Marianna Figuera and Katarzyna Żebrowska, is dedicated to the scientific activity and interests developed by former participants of the International Course organized by the University of Catania (Italy), which since 2009 has involved also the University of Warsaw (Poland). It contains several articles related to the Bronze Age and Ancient Aegean. The volume has been published in 2016 in the Italian Syndesmoi series.

"Aegean Bronze Age Textile Production Techniques - Spinning and Weaving", 2nd Experimental Archaeology Workshop in Warsaw, 15-19 June 2015, short report
"Aegean Bronze Age Textile Production Techniques - Spinning and Weaving", 2nd Experimental Archaeology Workshop in Warsaw, 15-19 June 2015, programme
Textile production in the Aegean Bronze Age and experimental/experience archaeology in the Department of Aegean Archaeology, Institute of Archaeology
The hands-on experience is a regular part of academic courses on textile production in Bronze Age Greece, conducted by me for students of archaeology, in the Institute of Archaeology, University of Warsaw since 2011, as well as experimental archaeology workshops I organised in years 2014, 2015 and 2016.
The activities which are practised more than once, specifically weaving on band looms (rigid heddles and tablets), but also weaving on a warp-weighted loom, came to be registered on documentation cards scheduled to record personal data of the actor, his/her experience, properties of the woven fabric and characteristics of work: its time, the level of attention required and satisfaction from work. This documentation system allows comparative analyses of weaving performed by different actors having different experience and different manual dexterity, and leads to some statistically based considerations on individual skills, transition of skills, and the work of weaving.
A small textile workshop has been setup in the Department of Aegean Archaeology. There are two warp-weighted looms of Scandinavian type, several sets of band looms (rigid heddles, tablets) and weaving frames. We use sets of loom weights weighting from 120 g to 600 g, which are copies of the Aegean Bronze Age artefacts replicated by students. In addition to weaving students practice plaiting, chosen carpet-weaving techniques, bead-working and sprang.
Since social aspects of weaving are of a great importance, students are encouraged to act in common and share the work – if possible. The cooperation, friendly atmosphere, talks and jokes are inseparable parts of our experiments!
POLISH-ENGLISH-GREEK-ITALIAN GLOSSARY OF TEXTILE TERMINOLOGY
I am proud to present our first Polish-English-Greek-Italian glossary of the textile terminology. Since the textile terminology is so difficult (in Polish especially) and mostly forgotten nowadays, we have got the idea of creating a concise glossary comparing terms in four languages. The authors: Kinga Kopańska, Tomasz Skocki, Agata Ulanowska, Monika Wesołowska, Katarzyna Żebrowska do invite everybody to add and to correct the glossary!
Special thanks for Sofia Tsourinaki for her very helpful and learnd revising the Greek terminology!
