This weekend, I finally yielded to temptation and purchased a copy of Medieval Clothing and Textiles 6, a peer-reviewed annual journal that is published by Boydell and Brewer and is edited by Robin Netherton and Gale Owen-Crocker. MC and T has always contained solidly researched articles with interesting content, but this year's issue was more interesting than usual for me personally. It contains, among other things, an article discussing the latest research and reconstructions based upon clothing finds in Latvia between the 7th and 13th centuries CE, an article about tablet-woven Carolingian bands, and an article about the use of embroidery to repair medieval manuscripts.
I am really looking forward to reading this issue. I expect to blog about at least one or two of the articles in this fascinating volume.
