These two Radio 4 books of the week look at the history of sewing and textiles.

From 30,000 year-old threads on the floor of a Georgian cave to the meaning of the linen on Tutankhamun’s mummy and the woollen sails that took the Vikings to America 700 years before Columbus, Kassia St Clair’s The Golden Thread tells the fascinating story of human textile ingenuity. 

Clare Hunter’s Threads of Life takes us from medieval France to a family attic in Scotland and tells of the people who have used the language of sewing to make their voices heard.
