A tunic style outfit with accessories common to many early or pre medieval cultures. Under tunic, over tunic, pants with leg wraps, turn shoes and a mantled hood
Few representations survive of early garments and many fewer extant examples, however what does survive would support much of what is shown here.
The fabric shows woven in patterns that existed across Western Europe in the centuries before 1000 CE. The basic style of layers of tunics and pants continued from before the centuries of the Roman influence to the age of Norman England.
A base layer of a linen under tunic may have been worn below the long sleeved wool tunic and the wool outer tunic. This example was made from Linen for use during warm summer events.
The pants made heavy cotton cloth would have been wool in period.
