Abstract :
Through an examination of excavated textile production equipment, explores the premise that the changes in the economic base of late Saxon England gave impetus to new textile production technologies and that these technologies enabled a more commercially based industry to develop and prosper. The production of cloth was not confined to urban centres; rural settlements also have evidence for textile production. Furthermore, the raw materials of fabric come from a rural environment, inextricably linking urban enclaves to their rural hinterland. Evidence from rural settlements is therefore examined alongside the excavated material from urban sites. In addition, in order to place developments in textile production technology in context, an investigation of textile manufacture from both the middle and late Saxon periods is undertaken. ;
