Camila Alday is an archaeologist specialised in bast fibres and weaving technologies of Pre-Columbian South America. In her doctoral research, Alday studied bast fibre materials to understand how the production of nets, looped bags, mats and other fibre materials underpinned maritime subsistence strategies during the Andean Preceramic Period (10,000 – 3,500 BP). She is also interested in understanding how containers - mostly made of plants, and basketry were critical material culture for past human societies.
