Within the past week, I discovered some articles on Academia.edu about projects in Viking clothing and textile manufacture. They are less formal in style than traditional academic papers because they were written by SCA folk, but they have interesting and useful information all the same. If you are interested in Viking age clothing, you may want to check them out.
- Verborg, Rolf. Weaving broken diamond twill fabric to create a Viking age apron dress. Describes the entire process, from making a warp-weighted loom to cutting and sewing the finished dress. Assumes more knowledge of the actual warping process than non-weavers are likely to have, but gives interesting and different information than other accounts of Viking-style weaving than I have read.
- Verberg, Susan. Women’s Set of Viking Winter Clothes: Based on 10th Century Haithabu garment finds. Describes the cutting and sewing of a complete winter outfit, based primarily, but not exclusively, upon Haithabu archaeological finds.
- Verberg, Susan. The Klappenrock: A Viking Warrior's Coat From 10th C. Haithabu, Similar to her "winter clothes" paper but about the wrapped coat believed to have been worn by Viking men.
- Thunem, Hilde. With a Pleated Front - a Possible Reconstruction of the Hangerock (selekjole) in Grave ACQ from Køstrup, in Lyngstrøm, H, ed. Refashioning Viking Age Garments. (SAXO Institute, Faculty of the Humanities). Shortened account of the reasoning Hilde employed in designing her apron dress based upon the Køstrup find.
The Academia.edu pages may ask you to "connect" or log in to read or download the articles, but an account on the site is free. Happy reading!
