Spinning on Coppergate

Recorded lecture: Spinning on Coppergate

Spinning plant and animal fibres would have been an unending task for York’s Viking settlers, due to the vast quantities of thread are required in order to weave fabric. Finds related to fibre preparation and thread production were found in the world-famous Coppergate Dig in large quantities and far outnumber the finds which relate to fabric production, suggesting spinning was a task at the heart of daily life for our past Viking residents. Join us for a fascinating look at the tools and techniques used to prepare and produce yarns at Coppergate, and exploring this absorbing Viking craft.   

This is a recording of a livestreamed presentation, as part of That JORVIK Viking Thing. recorded on 15.02.21. 

Due to popular demand, we have decided to make recordings of our events available to watch afterwards, but in order to sell tickets we have to have the event on a specific date. Therefore the event is listed as 27th February at 12.00 on the booking system, but the recording will be available to watch anytime from the time of purchase until 6.00pm on 27.02.21.
