Questions on Egyptian Garb
I'm rather new to the SCA and I'm trying to ground my character as
from 7th Century Egypt. I know, at that time, they were long
conquered by Rome and Rome had drifted in the Byzantine Empire.
What I need, however, are hints for Garb. Many of my resources only
point to the evolution of Roman culture. I know the spite against
Byzantine rule was high in Egypt, so I'm unsure how much clothing
there changed from the more hellenistic periods.
I'm looking to predate the Arabic invasion of 642 and set the time
somewhere around 600 on the dot. So, I'm also avoiding Islamic
Does anyone know anything about Egyptian Garb at that time or any
resources for pictures or ideas?
