Twined Textiles

Due to the soil conditions in the North East, we rarely find fragments of twined textiles. Most of the cordage fragments found in northern Vermont, where found near cooper (Peterson, James B., 1996:56). A pottery shards impressed with the design of twined textile was found along the Winooski River (Power, and Petersen).
