      This was wonderful! Babel Fish seems to have done a decent job translating, just a bit of fine tuning necessary. Thanks for sharing! Aleksandra (also An Tir)

        The author seems to have done a ton of research; all of her sources
        are listed out. The costume is based on the archaeological
        excavations at Gnezdovo. She wove her own fabric, used natural dyes,
        and in some cases (embroidery) spun her own thread.

        I'll try to get around to translating one of these days, but if anyone
        has any specific questions, please ask.

        around links, you'll get some other photos (on the right) and drawings
        (on the left) of reconstructed outfits .
