NEWSLETTER FOR ARCHAEOLOGICAL TEXTILES. Ulla Mannering of the Centre
for Textile Research in Copenhagen sends this notice: As of 2008,
Archaeological Textiles Newsletter (ATN) is being published by the
newly established Friends of Archaeological Textiles Newsletter and
edited at the Centre for Textile Research. ATN is a twice-yearly
publication focusing on textiles found in archaeological contexts
dating from the prehistoric to the modern age. Geographically, ATN
concerns itself mainly with the Old World textiles (from Western
Europe to Japan) but New World textiles may be included if deemed
relevant. ATN began publication in 1985 to provide a medium for
discussion, interaction, and exchange of information between
archaeologists, conservators, historians, art historians, biologists,
chemists, geologists, and craftspeople who have archaeological
textiles at the core of their interests. Over the years, ATN has
moved from an informational service to become an important venue for
publication of important scientific articles. It also includes notes
and queries, reviews, resources, and conference and event
announcements. To subscribe, visit http://www.atnfriends.com . BAYEUX
