Abstract [en]

This paper addresses the need to review the modern presentation of textile archaeology in museums. It is time to look at textiles in archaeology with new eyes. The reality behind archaeological textilestudy is holistic, embracing many different aspects of society. The presentation of textiles has in my opinion become old-fashioned. I will show in my paper that Jonathan Adams’ `seven constraints´ model, developed for research on ancient ships, can also be applied to textile research. I will also show that it is obvious that all seven constraints or`aspects´ as I call them - namely purpose, technology, traditions,material resources, economy, environment and ideology - and the connections between them should be taken up in museum displays. It is first then that we can obtain a holistic view of what textiles have meant to people over time.
