A Cheaper NESAT X

The published volumes from each North European Symposium for Archaeological Textiles ("NESAT") contain wonderful information about costume-related archaeological finds, especially for early period costume, but the volumes themselves can be hard to obtain and are usually pricey when found.

So I was pleased to see that Casemate Academic is selling a PDF copy of NESAT X (the one before the most recent volume, NESAT XI) for $48.00 USD. The page that PDF can be purchased from is here. This is possible because Casemate is the American affiliate of Oxbow Books, and Oxbow happens to be the publisher of NESAT X. 

Granted, $48.00 still may be a lot of money for one book, especially for a digital book.   But, in my opinion, it still represents an improvement over having to track down NESAT X by interlibrary loan (and having to return it before fully absorbing the information you've sought it out to find) or paying the much higher dead-tree price, so I figured I'd pass the information along.
