Kort om Sigtunafynden av medeltida klädesplomber
Medieval Cloth Seals from Sigtuna. A brief account of ten medieval cloth seals from the town of Sigtuna, Sweden. Seven seals are from excavations in 1996 and 1999–2000. Three are older finds. The origins of two can be confirmed as Poperinge and Tournai, both towns in the historical Flandres region well-known for producing and exporting cloth from the 13th to the 16th centuries. The other seals could not be firmly identified but are discussed with regards to imagery and alternative provenances. Stratigraphical dating of the find context, where possible, is from the late 13th to 15th centuries. The seals are testimony of trade and import of high quality textiles. However, judging from these finds only, little can be said about possible quantities.
