Last Garments. Grave Finds from the Assi el-Hadath Cave in Lebanon, 30 April to 12 November 2023

The Abegg-Stiftung has been conserving textiles from the National Museum of Beirut for several years now. The textiles are shrouds and garments discovered in the Assi el-Hadath cave on Mount Lebanon between 1988 and 1993. There, in the thirteenth century, people sought shelter, lived and buried their dead. Thanks to the dry climate, the textiles have been preserved.
