In which I talk about a new study of an old (1938) discovery of Viking age grave remains in Iceland. The inhabitant of the grave was a young woman wearing a blue apron dress. Naturally, I yearn to learn more about her and her clothing, but research is still continuing. Anyway, go here for the entry.

In which I talk about slipper socks. Okay, slipper socks from the Anazazi Pueblo culture dating the 1100-1300 C.E., but they're still slipper socks, as the entry and the write-up it links to shows, made from cotton, animal hair, and yucca leaves. Go here for the entry.
