Abstract

Excavations at Nahal Omer, an Early Islamic way station in the Negev Desert (sixth to ninth centuries AD), have yielded exotic textiles such as silks and cottons. Through a new study of these textiles, this project investigates the trade networks and global connectivity along this little-known artery of the Silk Road.
