Medieval Clothing and Textiles 6

Because it's nearly the end of the year, I've been attempting to edit my list of new books to add books planned for publication in 2010. Over at the Boydell & Brewer site, I took a look at the upcoming sixth volume of Medieval Clothing and Textiles, the annual journal edited by Robin Netherton and Gale Owen-Crocker. The table of contents for Volume 6 contains several essays that tempt me personally, but I'll just replicate the proposed table of contents here and readers can judge for themselves.
1. Archaeological Dress and Textiles in Latvia from the Seventh to Thirteenth Centuries: Research, Results, and Reconstructions. Hilary Davidson and Ieva Pigozne.

2. Weaving Words in Silk: Women and Inscribed Bands in the Carolingian World. Valerie Garver.
