Brilliant update, 27 Dec. 2012
Having read the original version I decided to treat myself to this revised and improved version. It is worth every penny. Gale Owen-Crocker's scholarship is matched by her very readable style. This is a comprehensive review of current knowledge which is welcome to everyone from scholars to re-enactors to the more general reader. It covers everything that was worn, with clear explanations of why theories are postulated, what is actually known from extant materials and what is conjecture. I strongly recommend buying this if you have any interest in the era.
