About this product
- DescriptionThe salt mine of Hallstatt is home to more than 700 individual textile fragments, which makes it the largest corpus of prehistoric textile finds in Europe (next to the textiles from the DUrrnberg salt mine nearby). This forms a unique treasure for prehistoric research due to its unusual conditions of preservation. The wide range of still colourful preserved textiles covers the time-span between 1500-1400 BC. The textiles shed light on the various developments of textile techlogy and the combination with the extraordinary context opens a window into the highly complex working processes and resource management of that era. In recent years, international research projects have been able to provide valuable insights into the beginnings of textile-dyeing and the evolution of fundamental textile techniques, using up-to-date scientific research methods in addition to textile analysis. This mograph is the first to display as a whole all the kwn textile artefacts from the salt mine of Hallstatt.
