I’m an Archaeologist, living in Austria, studies in Late Roman, Longobards, settlements, clothing. Focusing on ancient technology, with a good base experience in wood and in textile craftsmanship. In 2015, I started experimental Archaeology in textile technology, spinning, carding, and especially on making textile tools, loom weights and weaving looms. I am in connection with NHM Vienna, Open Air Mamuz Austria, Experimental Archaeology University of Vienna, Soprintendenza Archeologica del Piemonte. My actual project is a research about a kind of weaving loom, warp-weighted with giant loom weights. The experiment consists in the reconstruction of giant loom weights from Roman settlement of Italy, by reconstructing the weaving loom, and weaving in different fibers.
