Textiles were the most important manufactured product in the medieval world and this exhibition, curated by Dr Chris King from the Department of Archaeology, looks at the archaeology of medieval cloth production and consumption. The Midlands were a major centre for sheep farming and cloth making, which we can see in the remains of deserted medieval settlements and through spinning and weaving tools. Spreading disease and depopulation, as well as wealth and knowledge, medieval cloth production and trade inter-connected communities across Europe, surviving and driving profound social, economic and environmental change.
