excavations, but funding for the reports...
In addition to bits and pieces from archaeology
reports and a few primary sources, I would also
mention several other resources:
Wincott Heckett, Elizabeth. Viking Age
Headcoverings from Dublin. Dublin: Royal Irish
Academy, 2003. ISBN: 0954385551 9780954385552 OCLC: 55214944
The PhD dissertation:
Fitzgerald, Maria Amelia. Textile production in
prehistoric and early medieval Ireland.
(Manchester Metropolitan University, 2000.) DXN039210 BLDSC ethos 326250
is finally available for free download. The EThOS
homepage is http://ethos.bl.uk/Home.do
It could of used a more thorough proofreading,
but is worth the read. It is also particularly
useful for it's discussion of law resources for costume.
Fitzgerald also did a MA thesis on Irish costume,
but I have been unable to acquire it as yet.
