Woven into the Earth. Textiles from Norse Greenland

398,00 DKK

In 1921 Poul Norlund discovered dozens of garments from a graveyard in the Norse settlement of Herjolfsnaes, Greenland. Preserved intact by the permafrost, these medieval clothes displayed remarkable similarities to those worn elsewhere in Europe and which, until then, had been known only from illustrations. This volume reports on the reults of eighty years of research and scientific investigation into this remarkable discovery. Else Ostergard describes the events of the excavation, the materials and methods used in making the clothes and the sophisticated weaving and sewing techniques despite the harsh conditions the women undoubtedly had to work in.
