"The book discusses what modern observers can and cannot deduce from medieval representations of clothing, questioning stereotypes. The numerous illustrations, including specially commissioned colour plates, photographs and drawings, demonstrate clothing in contemporary art (manuscripts, ivories, metalwork, stone sculpture, mosaics), and focus on surviving dress fasteners and accessories, explaining types and geographical-chronological distribution." "The colour reconstructions of early Anglo-Saxon dress are complemented by a cutting pattern for a gown from the Bayeux Tapestry (by Robin Netherton). Old English garment names are discussed throughout and a glossary is appended."--Jacket.
