Jakabová, Vanda ; Beneš, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Březinová, Helena (referee)
This work deals with the re-examination of the textile finds and the tool accompanying their production from the Chamber Grave II in Žuráň near Podolí. This examination is providing the basic textile analysis with the results of the scanning electron microscopy SEM, which assisted in the identification of two kinds of yarn materials on the textile pseudomorphs. The results of the quantitative roentgen fluorescence analysis of golden lamellas, still wrongly interpreted in the literature as a brocade fabric, proved them to be from pure gold. Based on the analogies, this work offers chronological classification of the finds to phase E of the Moravian migration period (500/510 - ~ 568). Additionally, included is the evaluations of all know textile finds from the same period from the area now known as the Czech Republic. Finally, experimental replication of the analysed textile was performed in order to test the limits of the loom and tools connected to local textile production during the Migration Period. Key words Migration period, phase E, Žuráň, Chamber grave, elites, textile pseudomorphs, golden lamellas, archaeological textiles, pleated effect, barred damask, burial clothing, reconstruction, experimental archaeology
