Lectures and Reception: Silk on the Silk Road

This event has finished.
See similar events or search events.


Over a century of archaeology on the eastern Silk Road has resulted in thousands of textile finds, preserved by the dry desert air. In their variety - of material, dyes, designs and weaves - they demonstrate the richness of cultural and technical exchanges among the peoples of the Silk Road. The speakers will consider these textiles, their original uses - from clothing to currency - their discovery and subsequent conservation, analysis, research and digitisation. Q and A opportunities will be incorporated throughout the session.
