I started this blog two years ago under the impression that it would probably turn out like diaries. I write in them for about two weeks and then give up, however it’s still going, possibly because it has to do with my abiding interest in costume and textiles. Anyway to NESAT, and to costume and textiles.
The volume of published proceedings of the last NESAT held in 2011 in Esslingen am Neckar in Germany, is now available from: http://www.vml.de/e/detail.php?ISBN=978-3-86757-002-2&hl=nesat. This is a wide ranging volume as the subjects covered go from the Neolithic to the 18th century. For those interested in the early modern period it contains both Beatrix Nutz preliminary report on the 15th century bras from Lengberg Castle, and Carol Christiansen’s group on The Gunnister Man Project: Researching and Reconstructing a Late 17th Century Garment Ensemble. Price €54.80
The next NESAT will be held in 2014 in Hallstatt, Austria The programme can be found at http://www.nesat.org/hallstatt_xii/program_de.html. It includes Jane Malcolm-Davies on excavated sixteenth-century knitted caps, and E. Wincott Heckett on 16th and 17th century metal laces.
