Preview Special Exhibition 2023 Last Garments. Grave Finds from the Assi el-Hadath Cave in Lebanon From 30 April 2023

The exhibition shows thirteenth-century garments and textile accessories that were found in the Assi el-Hadath cave in the Qadisha Valley in Lebanon. Thanks to the dry climate they are well preserved and are now prized as unique testimony to the clothes worn by a rural population during the Middle Ages. These grave finds have now been conserved at the Abegg-Stiftung and before they return to the National Museum in Beirut, a selection of the most interesting and attractive of them will go on show in Riggisberg.
