I very much enjoyed the view - too bad it's all post period -, but would
like to get my hands on the book mentioned, The Greek Ethos: Folk Art of
the Hellenic World , as the author (cited as the person who wrote the
glowing report on the collection presented) seems to feel comfortable with
an assertion that the Rumanian costume is virtually unchanged since Roman
times. I would really *love* to see his evidence and sources. Finding
period Rumanian clothing or descriptions of period Rumanian clothing that
wasn't tampered with by any of the many peoples who ran over the country or
just outright changed by the communists would be a God send.
