Thorsbjerg Viking trousers

Hello,

does anyone know the Thorsbjerg trousers? Do you know how they should be worn? I mean, should they be a rather tight or a baggy model?

Roman Deepeeka helmet

Hello,

I bought a Roman helmet of deepeeka (An Imperial Italic D, Mainz type) some time ago. However, I am not sure whether it is of the old or of the new line of products. Could you perhaps check this?
A picture is attached.

Thanks in advance!

If you have a genuine interest in Scottish history, I'm more than happy to talk about it. But I have no interest in those who want to believe in daft myths (which don't even have a basis in reality) that detract from the achievements of the Scotland her people.


Sure, but not in this topic.

Completely off topic, but looking at your website, can you explain why you think there's such a thing as Irish Clans and are you seriously suggesting that there's a link between the Templars, the Battle of Bannockburn and Rosslyn Chapel and where on earth you are getting your information about Scot...

Celtic anthropomorphic swords

Hello,

does someone know something on the development of the Celtic anthropomorphic hilted swords? They were used in the Hallstat and the La Tène period, was there a difference between the two periods?

Thanks in advance.

I was already afraid about that, but I will be okay, just recieved a pdf-file of clothing of early medieval Ireland.
So what about footwear? I tend to turnshoes, but I am not even sure whether they wore shoes or not.

Thanks for the link!

Contemporary sources, or 16th century retrospectives?


I'm not sure to be honest. Most of them are not the primary source but they are used in texts.

I found this one very useful and this one too.

Clothin of the isles

Hey,

I'm searching for some sources on woman clothing of Harris and Lewis of around 1314. I found some information on gallowglass warriors but I can't find anything on woman's clothing. Could anyone recommend me a source for that information?

Thanks in advance.
