One of the most recent examples is Heroine (1832-38), excavated from 2003-2008 near Fort Towson, Oklahoma on the Red River. One of the aspects of the wreck is the collection of personal possessions recovered during excavation. Read more »

The ancient Egyptians had a rich crafts tradition, which we can trace in the lively representations in tombs, and in a broad range of archaeological evidence. Studying ancient Egyptian technology brings to the fore that these crafts are rooted in a system of apprenticeship which enabled both tradition and innovation. Read more »
