Two women were found in a ship-burial in a
large burial mound at the Oseberg farm near
Tnsberg in Vestfold County, Norway. The
ships internment into its burial mound dates
from 834, but the ship itself is thought to be
older. The grave had been broken into by
grave robbers long before it was found by
Unfortunately, the soil conditions have not
been good for vegetable fibres like linen. No
linen has been preserved at all, although there
is an imprint of a linen fragment on a flake of down (photograph on the right), showing that it was
present among the clothing following the two women in the grave.

In the Oseberg find this type of fabric (linen) is now completely destroyed, but it is clear that they
must once have comprised a large part of it. A few fabrics have been associated with down and
has left black marks on feathers <...> Another fabric was a tabby. It had 9-10 threads per cm in
both systems. The vegetable material in both these fabrics was linen, according to A. M.
Rosenquist. Apart from the mentioned impressions some black cakes can be observed on other
textiles. These are possibly the remains of deteriorated vegetable fabrics of linen or nettle.

Jensdatter" (SCA)

The clothing fragments found in relation to the two women are of blue and red dyed wool in
several different weaves. The fragments are small, making it difficult to ascertain exactly what
the garments they belonged to looked like, but Anne Stine Ingstad who analysed the textiles
does not interpret any of them as belonging to a serk. There may have been linen serks worn
underneath the woollen garments, but if so, these have not been preserved.
