I do 10th Century, however, there are others, whose blogs I admire, who do earlier and later period Byzantine, and there is a lot to be said about knowing what came before and after my time period. A NEW RESOURCE just became available over at Anachronistic and Impulsive: Thesis Recap: Moving Onward.
In addition to spectacular photos of the GARB she created to illustrate her thesis for her MA, she has made her dissertation, with the glory of footnotes and Bibliography, available on Etsy for $8 (USD). It is an electronic download and prints out nicely even if you only have a black and white printer. Color could only be better.
I am all for great reference material to add to one’s collection of Byzantine documentation.
Now if only she would take everything she has done, and perhaps a tiny bit more, and create a book, with Late Roman, Early Byzantine, Middle Byzantine and Late Byzantine sections, illustrated with drawings, sketches and photographs. She would have the definitive volume on Women’s Garb for the Roman and Byzantine persona in SCA period.
We can only hope. Meanwhile, go read the rest THERE.
