This week we are starting the first of a four (?) part look at pre-modern textile production. As with our series on farming and iron, we are going to follow the sequence of production from the growing of fibers all the way to the finished object, with a focus not merely on the methods of production but also
on the people doing the producing at each stage of production. Now while I have titled this series, “Clothing, How Did They Make It?” it is worth noting that textiles were used for a lot more than just clothing. All sorts of household goods were produced this way. In addition, of course, clothing was sometimes made out of non-textile materials (although, as we’ve discussed, far less often than is portrayed in popular culture; in Eurasia, by and large, clothing meant textiles).

She's one of the most recognizable figures in the art world, but shrouded in mystery. Ever since Louis XVIII donated her to the Louvre in 1821, she's captured the attention and praise of audiences and historians, but many are still baffled by her origins — who
is Venus de Milo, and what exactly happened to her arms?
The half-naked marble goddess many of us know as Venus de Milo actually likely represents two figures who are
notVenus, the Roman goddess of love, sex, beauty and fertility. The statue is thought to represent either Aphrodite, Venus's Greek counterpart, or Amphitrite, the goddess-queen of the sea and wife of Poseidon. But when the statue was discovered in 1820 on the Greek island of Melos (Milos in modern Greek) and presented to Louis (who in turn donated her to the Louvre), no one was quite sure what to make of her.

What Was Life Really Like for an Ancient Greek Woman?
The lives of the ancient Greeks were ones of hardship and endurance. The experiences of ancient Greek women were even tougher. If a newly born Greek girl was deemed worthy and not abandoned, their purpose was typically a traditional role as a wife and child bearer, for the priesthoods, for the economy of textiles or for servitude in a palace. Life of course was easier for those in the upper levels of society. Women were not allowed to have a formal education, and only men were given the privilege to learn from philosophers or scribes.

What Makes Spartan Women So Different From Other Ancients?
In Sparta, the individual did not matter. Everything was for the preservation and continuous strengthening of the state. They built no walls since they welcomed any to challenge invasion. They lit no nightly fires to remain hidden in the dark. They spoke with so few words, so plain and directly that they keyed the adjective ‘laconic’, which derives from the Spartan Province of Laconia. Though many will remember the Spartans as unflinching selfless warriors to the will of their state, they will always maintain intrigue with how they treated their women. As equals in education and intellectual discussion. For Spartan men who died in battle, and for Spartan women who died in labor, they were honored and remembered with their names inscribed on headstones near their city.
