Abstract [en]

In 1951 a body of a man was found during peat digging in a peat bog at Gunnister, Shetland Islands, Great Britain. The man had been wearing a shirt, breeches, coat and a jacket made of fulled wool fabrics. His stockings, gloves, 2 caps and a small purse were knitted from wool yarn. In the purse there were two Dutch and one Swedish coin of 1683, which date the costume to around 1700. Following a partnership agreement between Shetland Amenity Trust and National Museums Scotland in 2008, detailed studies were undertaken on all of the artifacts with a view to making a full set of replicas. The project started with thorough studies and documentation at the museum in Edinburgh. Next step was the practical work: The wool was sorted, washed, carded or combed and spun. Several spinning, weaving, knitting, fulling and sewing samples were performed before the production of the clothes could start. All operations were carried out as close to the originals as possible. The success of the project is an effect of a close cooperation between participants having different competences, deep knowledge of craft, and experience from the reconstruction of historical and archaeological textiles.
