5th century kit for Irish woman

Postby Morcant on Sat May 16, 2009 9:29 am

Im looking for some information to help a friend building her a kit for a 5th century irish impression, a woodcutter wife to give you an idea of her status.
I suggested her to go for:
- linen robe as underdress
- woolen robe
- and over that, a "peplos" or tubular garnment fastened at shoulders with penannular broochs
- a hooded mantle or something akin to the sagum as cloack.

What do you think about it?

Bill might have an angle on this. It's late Iron Age but close to blurring into Early Christian era. He's babysitting exams today and away the weekend, it may be Monday before he comes back or I get the info out of him. I'll try remember to ask him.
