The Linen Kilt


The kilt, a common garment during this period, was woven in a plain tabby weave from natural linen yarn. Its edges are decorated with black bands and fringes. Because it had been heavily smeared with a thick layer of red ocher, its color was darker than that of the other textiles. Though the kilt was found crumpled inside the shroud, it is likely that the deceased was dressed in it when he was buried.
