    Abstract

    Two wall hangings, from the time of the Second World War, were reportedly made from human hair. Laboratory examination of the hangings confirmed this fact. Fibers, holding the wall hangings together, and the weave of the hangings were also examined. Results and implications of the findings are discussed.
