Numerous archaeological finds made from plant fibers testify to the extensive know-how of the Neolithic population on the extraction and further processing of this important raw material. A fiber flax grown specifically for textile production can be proven in the Alpine region so far from the early 4th millennium BC. Tree bast and grasses also played a role in the production of clothing, nets and all kinds of utensils, which have been preserved under anaerobic and humid conditions. Hidden in the archaeological record are artifacts - hitherto unrecognized - that were of great use in textile production, as experiments with replicas suggest.
