Title

Photograph of grave 350/II_SJE8

Description

This item is the only version of the grave photograph found during our investigations. It is a scan of the image published in Late Antique Textiles. Extensive digging in the archives at Uppsala have unfortunately not produce any trace of the original's negatives or a printed copy.

This picture was used to illustrate the use of textiles in the graves, especially as shrouding material.

The original caption reads "Tomb 350/II, X-Group burial with textile finds ont eh chest."
