•Invaluable resource for those interested in early Norse textiles. Gives information such as weave, spin direction and thread count from the Bronze Age through the Viking Age in Scandinavia, separated by country, including an expansive catalog of finds. The text is in Danish, but there is a 66 page English translation of the work (the catalog is in Danish only, but fairly easy to parse out). The downside is that these items are not broken out into types of textiles (functional or garment), so one would need to cross reference individual graves with other reports if that information was needed.
