Poster with images of late antique textiles

My Poster for Cary’s talk, featuring the Temple Newsam (and other) garment fragments.

It has been necessary to postpone this talk until a later date in the series (to be confirmed) due to ill health. We apologise for the short-notice and thank those who have taken an interest.

Cary MacMahon talks about the survival of fourth century AD (“Coptic”) textiles and the journeys that have brought them – in pieces – to British Museums. Hear about the role of the excavations of Flinders Petrie and the involvement of the Scottish dry-cleaning trade!The focus of the talk will be to contextualise the survival of two specific fragments in the Leeds City Museums’ collection and suggest the location of other fragments of what might be the same garment.
