Item description for Cloth And Clothing in Early Anglo-Saxon England, AD 450-700 (CBA Research Reports) (CBA Research Reports) by Penelope Rogers...

This archaeological study of textiles and costume considers all aspects of Early Anglo-Saxon clothing - how textiles were made in the Early Anglo-Saxon settlements, how the cloth was fashioned into garments, and the nature of the clasps and jewellery with which the clothes were worn. It is both a practical guide to the manufacture of clothing and a review of the significance of textiles and costume within Anglo-Saxon society.

Drawing from a database of 3,800 finds, the book includes a review of the primary evidence from 162 Anglo-Saxon cemeteries, where small fragments of the dead's clothes have been preserved with brooches, pins and necklaces.

Regional styles of dress, the social and cultural meaning behind changing fashions, the role of women in textile production, and Scandinavian and Continental influences help place the study in its broader historical and archaeological context.

This book will be suitable for general readers, undergraduate students, and re-enactors, as well as archaeologists excavating sites of the period and those working in the heritage industry on the reconstruction of Anglo-Saxon life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cloth And Clothing in Early Anglo-Saxon England, AD 450-700 (CBA Research Reports) (CBA Research Reports)?

Excellent use of extensive archaological research  Jun 2, 2007
In this book, Professor Rogers has used her substantial archaeological knowledge and experience to give the reader clothing reconstructions for the early Anglo-Saxon period that comport with the most recent evidence. Richly illustrated, the book is a prime example of how archaeology can (but seldom does) enrich the study of costume. If the book has a flaw, it lies in the fact that Professor Rogers's use of period art to support hypotheses about period costume is not quite as skilled or persuasive as her archaeological analysis.
