Prehistoric Textiles: The Development of Cloth in the Neolithic and Bronze Ages with special reference to the Aegean (Princeton, 1991; 470 pp.; the technological history of early textiles); Women's Work--The First 20,000 Years (Norton, 1994; 334 pp.; the social and economic history of early cloth and clothing); and The Mummies of Urumchi.... all three books received book prizes from the Costume Society of America...
