The paper presents preliminary data on leather and textile artifacts from the Timişoara Sfântu Gheorghe Square
2014 archaeological excavation, data that will be taken into account when initiating the conservation operations
of the artifacts.
The structure of the soil and the environmental conditions in the soil were favorable for the conservation of these
artifacts for a long period, which made possible their discovery during the archaeological rescue excavations in the
perimeter of the old fortress of Timisoara. However they show multiple, specific degradations, reported by us in
other scientific papers as well: rigidity, deformations, cracks, cuts, ruptures, combined damage and also advanced
functional wear. Rebalancing their state of conservation can only be achieved due to the rapid onset of conservation procedures.
