This scrupulously researched book on fashions of ancient times provides a massive amount of information on European clothing styles prior to the Norman Conquest. Norris traces the origin and development of garments from paleolithic times to the Norman Conquest in 1066, noting the effects of historical events and cultural standards on the evolution of clothing styles. Over 140 illustrations, including 17 plates in full color, display a wide range of clothing styles, including draped robes of classical Greece, the cloak and tunic of a Celtic chieftain, the jewel-encrusted apparel of a 10th-century Byzantine emperor, garments of peasants, slaves and laborers, examples of footwear, hairstyles, headdresses and jewelry.
