Theresa Kamper is a materials analyst and experimental archaeologist specializing in leather and tanning technologies in a range of time periods. Her research focuses on the microscopic analysis of tanning technologies and skin morphology, as well as producing accurate replicas of archaeological leather artefacts. Theresa also provides a variety of different workshops for the public as well as demonstrations at museums around the world.
This episode of The EXARC Show features Finally Friday guests Theresa Emmerich Kamper and Ian Dennis for “Tanning, Tools, and Talking”. Our guests this month bring a wealth of skills to the workshop, and have spent years teaching those skills. Host Matilda Siebrecht talks our guests through the value that hands-on expert knowledge brings to experimental archaeology. Tune in for further chat about the joy of accidental discoveries, challenges to the ideas of "women's work" and "men's work", and the lifelong benefits of letting kids explore the world with their hands. As always, Finally Friday starts with a conversation between our guests and wraps up with questions from participants in the EXARC Discord. More information on joining us for future events can be found on The EXARC Show website. Support the show (
