Abstract

The finds comprising small fragments of fabric and fiber from the 2004 excavation season of the prehistoric Sugokleya Kurgan in Ukraine are of great significance to the understanding of fiber technology. Two fragments of dark brown fabric were retrieved from under the right foot of probably a man in Burial 5, belonging to the Pit-Grave Culture, while remains of twisted fiber were retrieved from burial 24. All fragments were analyzed under 10x magnification and the disposition and coarseness of fibers revealed that they may be of vegetal nature. Initial examination of the Sugokleya material revealed that two different kinds of fabrics were deposited in Burial 5. Twined fabrics have been retrieved from other Pit-Grave sites in Ukraine, which reveals that the Pit-Grave Culture population was able to generate a variety of complex fabrics.
