Unhappy

Been looking around the net for some serious pages containing lots of info about middle age fashion and design when it comes to cloths. I have basic knowledge, but looking for something more advance. Tired finding all these crappy pages with 1 page text and two pictures.

Anyone have some good links they would like to share?
Mostly looking for early m.e to high m.e period. Nothing renes (i hate that word) or late m.e.

Thanks for reading.

Anyways, there are a few good books you can pick up at your local Barnes and Noble.

One notable book is "Dress in Anglo-Saxon England" by Gale R. Owen. It is decently written and seperates male and female, further seperating by era.

I, like you, found nothing of much substance on the web. But I did do a search for the aforementioned book and author and came up with page that may or may not be useful:

Angelcynn - Anglo-Saxon Living History 400-900 AD (www.angelcynn.org.uk)

It's not much compared to owning a book, but it may be enough to get you through, although I didn't see alot concerning dress of the poor.

When you get there (the pictures are worthless) Click on clothing and scroll down, it has Men and Woman costume, seperated by Pagan / Christian, with a few pages on each.

This has alot of links to various pages on the middle ages. Very useful if you're too lazy to check every 1,000,000,000 pages that google finds.

Don't forget that old, musty place called the library. The Internet is all fine and good, but remember, nearly all of that knowledge base comes from, in one form or another, written works. I find, for serious research, the library is far more rewarding than the Internet.

Well, I was going to say -

The Renaissance Store

but I see you didnt want the Renaissance period THOUGH, they do have books cover the Middle Ages including society and clothing, as well as the ME period here :


clothing

(scattered across the page..sorry. but at least 9 books that cover MA and MEperiods)
Also there are some other pages there that cover the times frames your're looking for.

Hope it helps

Clothing and some weapons... not really much on the clothing really, but has pictures and descriptions. Really nice replica weapons though. *grins*

Ah, yes... just plain www.musuemreplicas.com might have some pictures, too.

Hmm, try Live Role Playing costume making guides.

They are fantasy rather than straight medieval - but most of it is based on medeival and they explain how to actually make the stuff.

Costume 1066-1966 by John Peacock
Thames and Hudson, Ltd. London
ISBN 0-500-27404-5

This is a decent reference for English costume from the battle of Hastings up to 1966. It is broken down by reign (William the Conqueror - Elizabeth II) and is page after page of illustrations, containing several sketches for both men and women's styles for each reign. Obviously this covers far beyond the Early Middle Ages and High Middle ages that you requested. The sketches aren't super detailed, but it gives you a really good idea of the fashion of the clothing.

Thanks for the links folks.

Generally, decent medieval cloth links are really hard to find, I went through most of it, and found some of value.

About the LARP (live action...) I'm one of those myself, so I have a quite high general knowledge, guess I'm just lazy and want a list of types, along with describtions and pictures

Thanks again.
