Riggisberger Berichte, Band 13. "The discovery and documentation of textiles in situ, that is to say embedded in the archaeological context, reveal a lot of information. This often simplifies dating and finding out the textiles’ former function and contributes to the understanding of a site and a society. The publication deals with the correlation between textiles and find spots. Different kinds of archaeological contexts are analysed including funerary, domestic and work-place contexts. Some contributions present attempts to re-evaluate and reconstruct materials and contexts of textiles discovered long ago. This book contains the papers of a colloquium organised by the Abegg-Stiftung in 2001. With contributions by Nettie K. Adams, Dominique Bénazeth, Lise Bender Jørgensen, Antoine De Moor, Cäcilia Fluck, Wlodzimierz Godlewski, Hero Granger-Taylor, Béatrice Huber, Nobuko Kajitani, Petra Linscheid, Ulla Mannering, Claudia Nauerth, Sabine Schrenk, Orit Shamir, Thelma K. Thomas, Chris Verhecken-Lammens, Gillian Vogelsang-Eastwood, John Peter Wild." -Publisher.
