The 17th-19th-century burial materials from northern Ostrobothnia are studied in order to consider the value, origin and meaning of textiles especially in child burials. The focus is on the preservation, quality and dyes of burial textiles unearthed at the yard of Oulu Cathedral as well as the clothes of the mummified bodies currently under the floors of northern Finnish churches. The materials consist of textiles of local, Swedish and central European origin. The research methods include visual and microscopic analysis, UHPLC-PDA and SEM-EDX analysis. Textiles of the naturally mummified remains of the children are studied through CT scanning images.
