Scrupulously Researched Book By Noted Authority Traces The Development Of European Clothing Styles From Prehistory To The Norman Conquest In A.D 1066 Over 160 Illustrations, Including 17 Full Color Plates, Display Draped Robes Of Classical Greece, The Jewel Encrusted Apparel Of A 10th Century Byzantine Emperor, Garments Of Peasants, As Well As Footwear, Hairstyles, Headdresses, And Jewelry. I m not a huge fan of Norris I feel his writing style is dry and dated, and on top of that he allows his personal bias to color what ought to be a book of facts, not opinions.
