Last night we started building a warp weighted loom based off of this loom from Castell Henllys.
Now, I'm aware of a couple changes that will need to be made because we're not re-enacting Briton, but 400CE Dal Riada instead. The big one will be type of warp weights used. Irish/Dalriada archaeology of that time period has produced no stone warp weights. A few people in the past have suggested sand bags or unfired clay. Both of which would leave no archaeological evidence. Recently, however, a member of our group suggested a third option; containing the regular stones in netting. The netting disintegrates over time and the stones are unidentifiable from the rest on the site. Additional thoughts, comments?
The next hurdle I'm looking at, is reproducing the shuttle. I've never even seen the shuttles used on a wwl, so I don't know where to even start. And so far, the photos of wwl's aren't close enough to include the shuttle either.
