Jorvik Visit

Jorvik Viking Centre kindly invited us to have a tour of their new visitor centre and museum.

It was lovely to see our wool out on display in the newly reconstructed Jorvick town, as examples of dyeing and on a two bar loom to demonstrate weaving. We are also looking into doing some skill-sharing work with their staff and volunteers, and returning to visit the Coppergate textile finds in the York Archaeological Trust stores.

Some fascinating objects on display in the new museum gallery, including a lovely naalbinded sock and some recordings from our friends at Ancient Music.
