Textile objects, elements of clothing placed in graves are seldom conserved and poorly researched. However, they inform us not only about clothing itself but also about other functions of textiles. Systematic collection and examination of fabrics may shed light on the textiles used by people of a certain region and period and what is more, import textiles may be identified. The study presents the catalogue and analysis of the textile remains excavated in Tiszafüred-Majoros, the largest Avar period cemetery in today eastern Hungary (mid-7th to 9th century AD).
