I have just been sent information on a new book, which I thought some of
you might be interested in :

"Textile Production at 16-22 Coppergate" by Penelope Rogers.
Part of the Archaeology of York series, and discusses over 1000 artefacts
connected with textile production discovered in and around the Viking age
and medieval buildings discovered at Coppergate, York, together with dye

The book includes a survey of the main classes of textile implements, with
reconstructions showing how the tools were used.
