Excavations in the heart of Dublin have uncovered numerous fragments of textile used for headcoverings. This well-presented book focuses on 68 fragments, dating from the 10th to mid 12th century, which were found in two streets. This important assemblage, therefore, provides a valuable opportunity to explore the link between the textiles and the people who lived in these Viking streets. At the heart of the book is a fully illustrated and descriptive catalogue of the scarves, bands and caps, made from wool and silk, but there is also a detailed discussion of the craftsmanship of the coverings, the types of cloth, the sewing techniques and their regional and international context, supported by historical and iconographic sources. There are also technical reports on the dye and remnants of hair.
