Describing the different garments worn by women and men, this book looks at the aspects of cloth production - raw materials, production tools and techniques for woven and non-woven textiles, decorative textiles and embroidery. It also shows how much can be reconstructed from the discoveries of archaeological excavation.
History isn't just a series of dates and events for Thor Ewing, but the story of real people whose lives and thoughts helped shape our world. A fascination with past cultures and how they connect with us today underlies much of his work.
His books help us rediscover that connection with our past, whether through the myths and religion of the Vikings, or the forgotten wisdom of the medieval Celts.
