Shortly before the end of the year, ARTEX is very glad to announce the publication of the fifth issue of its journal, Arachne, specialized in archaeological textiles. 

This volume has two parts hosting the proceedings of two workshops on Greek archaeological textiles. The first one is dedicated to papers presented at the PROCON workshop held at the BSA in March 2016, entitled “Weaving the Past: The archaeology of textiles and textile production in Greece in the first millennium BCE”. The second part of this volume hosts papers presented at the workshop “ARTEX: Study and promotion of archaeological textiles in Greece”, organized on 01/10/2016 by Stella Spantidaki and Lia Andreakou at the ICOM Hellenic Committee in Athens.

We would like to thank Dr. Margarita Gleba, PI of the ERC PROCON Project for her collaboration and support and for financing this volume. Last but not least, we thank our permanent collaborator Ta Pragmata Publications for publishing and promoting all issues of Arachne.

Former issues of Arachne are available in digital form here.

Since the early 2019 you can contact us in order to buy the new issue or find it in selected bookstores.
