Norwegian Vikings grew hemp

Norwegian Vikings grew hemp | Ancient worlds | Scoop.it
Cannabis was cultivated 1,300 years ago at a farm in Southern Norway.

As with flax, used to make linen, the fibre from the cannabis plant can be used for clothes and other textiles. Hemp, of course, has also been used for rope production right into modern times.

“Hemp has a fibre that can be used like flax, but it is a little coarser,” explains Vedeler.

The challenge for the archaeologists is that ancient textiles made of hemp and flax tend to rot, and thus are rarely well preserved. This makes it hard to say how common it was to use these textiles. Archaeologists know more about the use of wool because its fibres preserve better than plant fibres.

Çatalhöyük: Shrine of the Hunters

The 'Shrine of the Hunters' is an archaeological reconstruction of a level 5 house from Çatalhöyük. It was originally excavated in the 1960's by James Mellaart and aside from a few informational illustrations, has had surprisingly little coverage.

 

One of the most decorated houses ever found at the site, this piece began as the focus of a MSc Dissertation by Grant Cox during the Virtual Pasts course at the University of Southampton and has since evolved into an animation.
