Dress in Anglo-Saxon England

This encyclopaedic study of English Anglo-Saxon dress examines the subject from the fifth and sixth centuries up to the eleventh century, drawing evidence from archaeology, text and art (with reference to re-enactors' experiences). It is based on the author's original study published two decades ago, during which time much has been learnt about the subject. Archaeological textiles, cloth production and the significance of imported cloth and foreign fashions are all put under scrutiny. Dress is discussed as a marker of gender, ethnicity, status and social role, and its contemporary significance in terms of symbolism and stylistic messaging is examined — whether Anglo-Saxons were dressing a corpse for its (pagan) grave, condemning frivolous dress among persons in holy orders, bequeathing their own clothes, or commissioning clothes for a king. 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.

Clothing culture

dress in Egypt in the first millennium AD : clothing from Egypt in the collection of the Whitworth Art Gallery, the University of Manchester

Author: Frances Pritchard

Publisher: N.A


Category: History

Page: 154

View: 2311

This is the first in-depth study of the Whitworth Art Gallery's acclaimed collection of clothing from post-Pharaonic Egypt, most of which was excavated between 1888 and 1923. The evolution of the shaping and cut of garments, especially tunics, cloaks and headwear, is traced from the late 3rd century, when Egypt was under Roman rule, to the 10th century, by which time it was an Arab state. The weaving and sewing skills of the era are brought into sharp focus, as well as the distinctive styles, decoration and colors of the clothes. Egypt in the first millennium AD was a rich cultural melting pot and this diversity was reflected in the dress of the people. The book is lavishly illustrated with specially-commissioned color photographs and line drawings. Frances Pritchard is Curator (Textiles) at the Whitworth Art Gallery, The University of Manchester, UK.
