Abstract:

An Egyptian archaeological textile, accessioned in the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) (Cat. No. 95/2444), from the Tomb of Hatnofer and Ramose, Eighteenth Dynasty (1550-1295 B.C.), Western Thebes was studied, with two textiles (Cat. Nos. 95/2443 and 95/2445) from the same tomb used as comparanda. The textile's finely spun fibers, plain-weave balanced structure with selvedge fringes and lower edge fringes, and with various weavers' marks, stains, and losses, provide invaluable historical data about finely woven, royal linens of Eighteenth Dynasty Egypt. Scientific analysis used for this study include: visual annotations, polarized light microscopy (PLM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) including fiber diameter measurements, and carbon-14 dating. Closely examining a textile and its fibers can provide information about the condition of the textile, linen quality, weaving techniques, and the life of the textile itself. While the linen fibers in the Study Textile (Cat. No. 95/2444) and the Comparanda Textile #1 (Cat. No. 95/2443) have been identified, it is still uncertain whether or not the fibers in the Comparanda Textile #2 (Cat. No. 95/2445) are of a different quality linen or of a different plant material which is very similar to linen within the bast fiber family. Further studies would be required to answer this and several other questions that remain.
