Medieval Clothing and Textiles 17

Edited by Cordelia Warr

With Anne Kirkham, Robin Netherton, Gale R. Owen-Crocker and Monica L. Wright

  • Description
  • Contents
  • Author
The best new research on medieval clothing and textiles, drawing from a variety of angles and approaches.

The essays here take us from the eleventh century, with an exploration of the Bayeux Tapestry, into an examination and reconstruction of an extant thirteenth-century sleeve in France which provides a rare and early example of medieval quilted armour, and finally on to late medieval Sweden and the reconstruction of gilt-leather intarsia coverlets. A study of construction techniques and the evolution of form of gable and French hoods in the late medieval and the early modern periods follows; and the volume also includes a study of the Great Wardrobe under Edward I of England, and what it can tell us about textiles at the time.
