Would anyone be able to take a peek at page 131 of Textilien aus der Siedlung und aus den Gräbern von Haithabu? The notes I'm looking at  indicate female grave VI/1930 included folded pieces of a twill fabric. It almost sounds like a  winding-sheet or mantle?

Is there any additional information?

Thanks in advance!

Apparently, a few years ago, there was a bit of media about Viking Age 'braids of hair wrapped in wood, leather... metal and Viking Age jewellery.'

It turns out, that they're actually 11th-13th century, so early medieval really. The Hull and East Riding Museum says they're "part of Finno Ugrian Culture. Grave goods excavated from a tumulus at Efaefsk (Efaevo), Russia, 1900." And there are fairly interesting photographs online, too.

If you go to their online collection catalogue, search for...

This should cheer [livejournal.com profile] cathyr19355 up: KINCM:2008.6067.42, KINCM:2008.6067.55, KINCM:2008.6067.56 and KINCM:2008.6067.58, are "omega brooches." They also have some of the pins with the spiral top that pop up on ebay as so-called Viking hair sticks, too. But haven't seen the style that has perforations and beads threaded through them, though.

According to the museum, in 1905 the British Museum purchased part of the collection, which you can search for using the term 'Efaevo.' No photographs, but more detailed written descriptions.

I have a weird feeling I have linked to this before.

But, here is a 1966 report, mentioning a pisanka, with a black and white drawing. Here is a colour photo.

If you click on the second link, and navigate through the Zabytki z badań w Gieczu menu on the left, there are some gorgeous photos of all sorts of things.

The Katalog Znalezisk Archeologicznych wiki have more pisanka photos, but I don't think they're 'new' examples for the ceramic egg fans. For the sake of including things while I remember them, an egg found in Fröjel, Gotland, and another on page 6 of this PDF
(No, I cannot conjugate Polish correctly, what is the plural of pisanka? Pisanki?)

Also, a 12th century figure from Płock, and the Płock diadem.

The museum of cultural history at the university of Oslo has an exhibition (and website) running, called

Pilgrimage: Sacred Journeys Past and Present which has lots of interesting photos of Norwegian finds of religious objects, including some information about the pilgrimage route to Nidaros (Trondheim).

At the Nidaros Cathedral museum, there is a 14th century drinking horn, along with other cool things, and a headstone of a 13th century Gudrid.

I'd never noticed this before, silly me.

All from the Fuller Museum of Virtual Archaeology: Medieval Novgorod Textiles

See the patterned fragment in the top right-hand corner?
It looks like some of the really elaborate swastika patterned embroidery from Prussia
Well, here it is up close. I could make that!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] celsa, there are some extant leather satchels here. Very generic dating of 10-15th centuries too. (Don't forget to right-click and view the image by itself, because the photos are huuuuuge and detailed.)

[livejournal.com profile] hometime, here is some stuff from Madrid. (The photos aren't as massive as the Novgorod ones, sadly.)

... before I figured out how meandrs.lv worked. (The 'Museum Collections on the Internet Database')

First, for your sanity, click on 'English' in the upper right-hand corner.
Then, when that's loaded, select 'National History Museum of Latvia' (Latvijas Nacionālais vēstures muzejs)
Magically, the collections within that museum load, and I clicked on 'Archaeology' (Arheoloģija) and a page popped up that let you select items that had pictures. (Ar audiovizuālo informāciju)

Tada! Pretty pictures!

available at RMIT somewhere:
Folk Dress in Europe and Anatolia, which has a heck of a lot on early period Latvian archaeology.

When I've finished with my hood and Manesse codex outfit, I'm going to throw myself back into Baltic, preferably a Liv outfit. With the blue spiral-decorated headband, and have a go at weaving fabric to make realistic-looking tubular selvages for the peplos gown.
