Dear CIETA Members,
I would like to inform you that the Nubian Textiles database, created in the frame of the “Nubian Textiles” project has been updated. It counts now almost 600 entries (textiles and textile tools) illustrated with pictures: http://nubia.iksiopan.pl/en/entry/welcome-to-the-nubian-textile-database-bd468d2c6b80
While the majority of textiles are of Nubian production, there is also a group of imported silks dated to the Late Medieval period, some of which were never published, which may be of interest for some researchers and Museum curators.
More about the project itself on the dedicated website: http://centrumnubia.org/en/projects/nubian-textiles/
With my best wishes,
