Sample text

Sequencing of subsequent examinations maximizes the data obtainedfroma single small sample. Once a sample is taken, further study under low magnification macroscopy can reveal additional features including color or structure variation. This information aids in the selection of sub-samples from which O M fibers and particulate can be identified. Furthermore, the general type of colorant can be determined by its location, thoroughly saturated color in the fibers is indicative of dyeing in comparison to surface deposited pigment particles.

A few display evidence of coloration, a feature that can be anticipated from the comments of early travelers and later ethnographers (9, 10). While some of the Mississippian textiles are of similar structure to the Middle Woodland textiles, others are very complex materials and are lace-like in appearance. Many of the materials from Etowah are preserved by mineralization, and display green-colored deposits on their surfaces. Bast fiber, rabbit hair, and feathers have been identified (2, 11). The textiles from these two sites selected for analysis are representative of the complexity of structure and fineness of yarns seen in the materials; they provide evidence of the sophisticated technology of prehistoric people in all phases of fiber collection, processing, yarn spinning, fabric manufacture and, when present, coloration.

A l l pictures were taken with the samples placed on flocking paper (Edmund Scientific), which creates an optically inert background and therefore does not interfere with the optical properties of the textile to be examined. Details of the forensic photography methods are described in Baldia and Jakes (64, 65). ; ACS Symposium Series; American Chemical Society: Washington, DC, 2007. 28 Table III.
