Three of these mended linen cloths were found in Tutankhamen’s embalming cache, and are thought to have been used as headscarves. This specific one is quite small, so may have belonged to Tutankhamen as a child - surviving dyed linen from Ancient Egypt is v rare! ✨

Linen homespun linen underdress. When sewing, the finds of textiles from Haitabu were taken as the basis of pattern. Completely my manual sewing with linen thread. Incredibly comfortable stuff! I am delighted!

Beautiful pieces of textile given to CTR as they were found in a museum magazine without any identification and clearly from an old excavation (not nicely preserved as shown here). As they cannot be used for scientific research, they have been donated to our students so they can work with real archaeological textile samples. Thank you😊. #centrefortextileresearch#ancienttextile#archaeology#textileresearch
