Textile fragment with interlocking spirals

Details

  • Catalogue text

    The large fragment has a continuous pattern of interlocking spirals, identical to Cat. no. 288 [EA1990.297], as well as a border with bands of chevrons.

    C-14 analysis dates the textile to 1255 CE +/- 55. Selvedge. The reverse shows more dye saturation than the surface. The main design field is dyed red only, but two of the narrow border bands were apparently dyed brown.
