In which I refer my readers to yet another on-line source--this one a close summary of the clothing-related pages of the book "Bundled in Blue", a National Museum of Iceland publication that describes a recent analysis of the 1936 discovery of a Viking woman's burial. Sound dull? Not to me, but if ancient clothing reconstructions don't appeal to you, don't go here to check out the entry.
In which I talk about a more than 2,000 year old hat style, favored by the armies of Alexander the Great, and apparently also by modern Afghans and Pakistanis. Any connection? Not necessarily. Go here for the entry.
In which I pass on a link to the page of an archaeological textiles publication that has just made its entire collection of back issues available for FREE download. If you are interested, go here for the entry.
If you aren't interested in fabric, especially fabric types common in the Dark Ages, you probably don't care about this post. On the other hand, since I've echoed here, you now know I'm alive and well, right? Anyway, if you are curious about the post, go here for the entry.
