[Authentic_SCA] Re: Garters
- There is real evidence that women wore buckled garters, at least early on.
From Textiles and Clothing 1150-1450 by Crowfoot, Pritchard and Staniland, page 143:
"The excavation of the tomb of a Merovingian princess, possibly Queen Arnegunde, who was buried c. 565-70 in the cathedral of St. Denis, France, revealed that she was laid out wearing linen hose secured below both knees with leather cross-gartering garnished with silver buckles and strap ends. (France-Lanord & Fleury1962, 345, 354, fig 3; Werner 1964, 212-14, figs 11,12)."
