Cloth cultures in prehistoric Europe is a post-doctoral fellowship project awarded to Susanna Harris by the British Academy from 2008-2011. The aim of the project is to bring together and examine evidence for textiles and animal skins in prehistoric Europe from the Neolithic and Bronze Age. A number of case studies are being examined as part of this project, including the Bronze Age Hallstatt salt mines. Here researchers working on these materials look at some of the similarities and difference between the techniques applied in their production and use in the mines as a way to understand their relationship in the past.
