French excavation site (approx 1010 AD)
- From http://www.culture.gouv.fr/culture/arcnat/charavines/en/index.htm
via the links in the middle of the page:
note the wooden block plane
note the wool comb and mention of shuttles for a horizontal loom!
saddle, spurs and bits
there are also pottery, musical instruments, food and other pages.
the collection is housed at Musée Dauphinois, Grenoble
I would very much like to locate the archaeological reports of the
artifacts from this site... The shuttles mentioned on the weaving page
If these are boat shuttles (as implied), they will be the earliest
(approx1010 AD) that I have been able to locate.
Any assistance would be extremely appreciated!
