Shirt of Queen Bathilde, who died ca. The shirt was placed into the coffin and imitates with its chainstitch embroidery precious Byzantine jewellery. It is executed in silks on linen, and seems strongly influenced my Mediterranean styles.
Early Europen riveted mail, 1st to 6th c AD, possibly Roman but is has none of the known characteristics of Roman mail, it does not appear to have any welded links, the link with a clear rivet hole is no different than the others where just the seam is visible, Roman mail isn't alternating riveted/welded rings, it's riveted/solid punched rings. There are definitely no solid punched rings in the fragment, wire thickness:2mm, outer dia:10.5mm, inner dia:6.5mm.
