Bronze Age Textiles of the North Cemetery: discoveries made by the Franco-Chinese Archaeological Mission in the Taklamakan Desert, Xinjiang, China

Abstract : A cemetery dated Middle to Late Bronze Age (c. 1700 BC and earlier), excavated by the Franco-Chinese Archaeological Mission in Xinjiang (north-west China) in the Taklamakan desert, produced more than one hundred different textiles. The context of the excavation and its circumstances are presented by the directors of the Mission and the totality of the material from one of the only two burials left undisturbed by looters are published, giving a sampling of the range of textiles that were originally to be found in each tomb.
