Archeon is all about fashion and textiles. There are several special demonstrations and activities.

In prehistoric times we weaved with vegetable fibres, such as nettle, flax and tree bark. In addition, wool is dyed and we spin and weave with wool. You can also learn to sprang here this weekend. That is the oldest way of braiding we know.  

In Roman times you can stamp textiles. You can also have your picture taken in Roman clothing at the Domus. Furthermore, there are various demonstrations of crafts.

In the Middle Ages you can learn how to do spool knitting or make flowers from felt. Furthermore, there are various demonstrations of crafts, such as embroidery, weaving and net-making.
