This research investigates the role of textile production in ancient societies of southern Italy; more particularly the project will reveal the economic and productive role of textile production by studying techniques, technologies, materials and protagonists in a series of 9th‑2nd century BCE southern Italian archaeological contexts. The result of the project will be a reconstruction of the economic, productive and social roles textile production plays in southern Italian ancient societies through an analysis of both the technical and technological evolution and the production material used; furthermore, in‑depth analysis of these four aspects will redefine the level of involvement of genders in the production and trade of textiles and further across to the analysis of social and cultural aspects of several populations – Greek, Roman and indigenous –, and enables us to complete the picture of one of the main occupations in all ancient societies. The project combines research traditions and scholarly knowledge in southern and northern Europe, and explores the ‘invisible’ textiles through tool analysis, experimental testing, and contextual analysis.

Abstract

This research investigates the role of textile production in ancient societies of southern Italy; more particularly the project will reveal the economic and productive role of textile production by studying techniques, technologies, materials and protagonists in a series of 9th‑2nd century BCE southern Italian archaeological contexts. The result of the project will be a reconstruction of the economic, productive and social roles textile production plays in southern Italian ancient societies through an analysis of both the technical and technological evolution and the production material used; furthermore, in‑depth analysis of these four aspects will redefine the level of involvement of genders in the production and trade of textiles and further across to the analysis of social and cultural aspects of several populations – Greek, Roman and indigenous –, and enables us to complete the picture of one of the main occupations in all ancient societies. The project combines research traditions and scholarly knowledge in southern and northern Europe, and explores the ‘invisible’ textiles through tool analysis, experimental testing, and contextual analysis.
