Research Topics

For the first time ever, a collection of fabrics from the era of Kings David and Solomon have been found. The textiles were discovered at the Timna copper mines in the Arava Valley, believed by some to be the site of King Solomon's mines. The fragments, most 5 x 5 centimeters in size, are from clothing, bags, tents, and rope and vary in color, weave, and ornamentation. This discovery sheds a unique light on the fashions of the time period.
