9781842174890: Textile Production and Consumption in the Ancient Near East: archaeology, epigraphy, iconography (Ancient Textiles)

In the past, textile production was a key part of all ancient societies. The Ancient Near East stands out in this respect with the overwhelming amount of documentation both in terms of raw materials, line of production, and the distribution of finished products. The thirteen intriguing chapters in Textile Production and Consumption in the Ancient Near East describe the developments and changes from household to standardised, industrialised and centralised productions which take place in the region. They discuss the economic, social and cultural impact of textiles on ancient society through the application of textile tool studies, experimental testing, context studies and epigraphical as well as iconographical sources. Together they demonstrate that the textile industries, production, technology, consumption and innovations are crucial to, and therefore provide an in-depth view of ancient societies during this period. Geographically the contributions cover Anatolia, the Levant, Syria, the Assyrian heartland, Sumer, and Egypt.

Review:

Each study provides increased clarity to the complex understanding of the meanings behind textiles and the roles that they played in ancient societies. (Deborah R. Cassuto Journal of Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology and Heritage Studies, Vol. 2 Issue 1)

In all the book is a well-balanced collection of papers, blending interpretive overview and specialist analysis - often in the same article. (Bruce A. Power, University of Winnipeg Journal of the Canadian Society for Mesopotamian Studies, Volume 7, Fall 2012)

Indeed, there is a great deal that is of interest in this book, and overall, one is struck by how sophisticated the study of textiles and textile production in the ancient Near East has become. If I could urge a long-term goal upon its practitioners, it would be to move beyond their specialized analyses in order to render their sophisticated understanding in a comprehensive and synthetic presentation. (Susan Ackerman Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Research, BASOR 372)
