Journal of Archaeology in the Low Countries 2-1 (May 2010)Chrystel R. Brandenburgh: Early medieval textile remains from settlements in the Netherlands. An evaluation of textile production


This article could not have been written without the generous help of many people who shared their knowledge and provided access to the textiles discussed. I would like to express my thanks to Egge Knol (Groninger Museum), Evert Kramer (Fries Museum), Ernst Taayke (Provincial depot Nuis), Annemarieke Willemsen, Marianne Stouthamer and Robert Ritter (National Museum of Antiquities Leiden), Henk Hendrikse (Stichting Cultureel Erfgoed Zeeland), Piet van de Velde (Leiden University), Katrin Kania, Hanna Zimmerman, Sandra Comis, for opening her vast library on archaeological textiles and to Nick Digby and Isabelle Vella Gregory for editing my English text. Lastly I would like to thank Penelope Walton Rogers for conducting the necessary analyses on my fibre and dye samples and for sharing her knowledge built up in many years of textile research of the early medieval period.
