In this study of Anglo-Saxon dress, Gail Owen-Crocker synthesizes a wide range of evidence - archaeological, historical and artistic - to reconstruct the history of the age, tracing political and cultural change through its repercussions in the area of fashion. The study aims to show how the growth of a Christian, literate culture is reflected in the increased importance of written or illustrated material as indicators of dress styles. The book, with its combination of technical description, historical analysis and artistic and archaeological content, will be of interest to a variety of readers - specialists, students of Medieval English history and those with a general interest in the Anglo-Saxon period and the history of costume.
