Looms, Weaving and Cumulative Culture: Part I – Introduction
Run Time: 23:02
The first in a series of three videos by Christopher Buckley discussing Cultural Evolution, in the context of a large-scale study of traditional weaving cultures and looms in East and Southeast Asia. This first video introduces the subject area, and reviews the evidence for the antiquity of weaving in this region, then discusses what “culture” means in this context. Parts II and III will deal with the transmission of culture and the evolution of technology.
