This website is kept up to date by Jolanda Bos. Jolanda (click here for her LinkedIn reference and her personal CV website) studied Egyptian archaeology at the Rijksuniversiteit Leiden, in the Netherlands. During the last ten years she worked at different excavations in Egypt. Her main field of expertise lies in the sphere of wearable heritage: archaeological beadwork analysis, contemporary costume and hair research from archaeological context. At present Jolanda is working on beadwork and hair research from Tell el-Amarna. In the past, Jolanda has worked on reconstructions of Pharaonic clothing. Apart from this, social implications of dress and personal adornment in contemporary West Asia and Northeast Africa is a research focus she has worked on. Jolanda consulted for several museums, worked as a guest curator and presently works as a heritage consultant at BLKVLD&Bos.
Please check out the page for more information on museum and other expertise. Ancient Beadwork is represented on Facebook by Wearable Heritage. Please contact us through this link.
