New Viking Textile Photos

I learned just this week that The Vikings of Bjornstad, an American-based Viking age reenactment group, have added a section of photographs from the Viking Museum Haithabu in Schleswig, Germany to their website. 

The photographs include photographs of textile and shoe finds as well as at least one reconstruction of textile decoration. Take a look at their photographs from the National Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark, which include photographs of reproductions of a pleated front apron dress and of the blue-and-red Lonne Hede costume. 

Although I might have wished for more written information about the subject matter of each photograph, they are still interesting and useful photographs for students of Viking age and early period costume.
