Numidian Clothing Through Archaeological Sources and Evidence

Dr. OSMANI Lamri
Keywords: Numidian Clothing, Archaeological Sources, Archaeological Evidence.


The archaeological remnants, both immovable and movable, scattered across North Africa, represent a venerable civilizational heritage spanning millennia. While extensive studies have delved into various historical dimensions through time, certain facets of North Africa’s past, particularly its civilization, remain insufficiently explored. Most scholarly attention has been directed towards political and architectural developments, whereas everyday life, cultural customs, traditional practices, and attire have been comparatively neglected.


This study seeks to identify the principal sources that illuminate the nature of Numidian clothing and to determine the materials predominantly used in their creation. The most critical sources identified include rock art, funerary and dedicatory monuments, and the historical accounts penned by ancient scholars.
