Visiting a Magyar Jurta

While I was looking for pictures of interesting items to add to my Pinterest board, I found an interesting website called "A Magyar Jurta". According to the author's description, this blog was started as a place to house her research into "Magyars of the conquest era," though she also writes about the costume of the Iron Age Finns and the Vikings (both of whom were roughly contemporaneous) and other cultures as well. She has supervised the construction of a reconstructed costume of a ninth-century CE Magyar woman, and posted excellent pictures of its components.

I commend her site to my readers for its attempts to assemble information on difficult-to-research subjects.


  1. Thanks for the shout out, Cathy. I very much enjoy and follow your website as well.

    1. My pleasure. I feel as though I'm doing something especially useful when I draw attention to good costuming and good research on the Internet. Particularly when I've been too distracted to do much of the same myself. Thanks for your kind words, and for stopping by!
