Imaging tool unravels secrets of child’s sock from ancient Egypt:

imperium-romanum:

The ancient Egyptians famously gave us paper and the pyramids, but were also early adopters of the stripy sock.

Scientists at the British Museum have developed pioneering imaging to discover how enterprising Egyptians used dyes on a child’s sock, recovered from a rubbish dump in ancient Antinoupolis in Roman Egypt, and dating from 300AD.


New multispectral imaging can establish which dyes were used – madder (red), woad (blue) and weld (yellow) – but also how people of the late antiquity period used double and sequential dying and weaving, and twisting fibres to create myriad colours from their scarce resources.

The Farafra depression (واحة الفرافرة‎‎) in Egypt’s large Western Desert, about midway between Dakhla and Bahariya oases, has about 5,000 inhabitants, mostly Bedouins. The town has traditional architecture – simple, smooth, unadorned, all in mud color – local culture and traditional methods of building and repairs have been supported by tourism. Often grouped within Farafra are the hot springs at Bir Sitta (The 6th Well) and the El-Mufid lake, but the main attraction is its White Desert (Sahara el Beyda) – a national park, whose main draw are its rocks colored from snow-white to cream from chalk. It’s a typical place visited by some Egyptian schools for camping trips.
