Caption: Early humans weaving. Coloured artwork of early humans spinning fibres from the flax plant on a drop spindle (lower centre) for use on a loom (background, upper right). The loom is an upright one, using weights to stretch the threads and ensure a tight warp for the fabric. Weaving is thought to be one of the oldest crafts in the world. Here, a domesticated dog indicates that this scene dates from the late Stone Age (Neolithic) or later. Original artwork published in Primitive Man (Louis Figuier, 1870).
