The Fabric of My Life

The fabric of my life. Memory, clothing and emotion in antiquity and today. From Odysseus to sustainable fashion. With examples from Archaeology and ancient texts, and informed by our recent collection of personal clothing stories from Danes and refugees, we explore together how and why clothing can be tokens of lived life and life stories.
