Research On Hallstatt Band 3

Merry Christmas!  Here's a bit of a Christmas present for those of you interested in tablet weaving, and ancient period costume.

From the Finnish blog Hibernaatiopesäke comes a recent post about research on a tablet woven band from Hallstatt, including a chart showing the pattern for weaving the band and a recreation of the band.  The research and re-creation work was done by Mervi Pasanen and Maikki Karisto.  The relevant post may be found here. The post is written in Finnish with an English translation, and includes excellent color photographs of both the original and the recreated band.    Enjoy!

If I ever get my inspiration for actual costuming back, I will weave my own recreation of this find; it's a striking and attractive design.
