ARCHAEOLOGY - Excavation reveals ancient hair fashion | Archaeology News | Scoop.it
Archaeologists conducting excavations in the northwestern province of Çanakkale’s Ayvac─▒k district have discovered hairpins thought to be over two millennia old, proving that ancient societies also had a pronounced desire to “look good,” according to researchers.

 

“The hairpins show us that there was a high demand for them in ancient times. Maybe their existence shows us that there was a small atelier for hair pin production here,” said Professor Nurettin Arslan of Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University, the head of the excavations, adding that women of the age placed great importance in being well-groomed and stylish.
