Archaeologist`s find: pins

NEWS | Published: 26.6.2012

These pins are made out of bronze thread. The end of the thread was twined, not casted as was done in earlier models. Various kinds of pins have been in use for thousands of years, primarily in clothes; pins held clothes together and the medieval womens' veils were skillfully pleated by using pins. Some of the pins had elaborate decorations and were made out of not only bronze but also silver.
