Klaipeda University has put up more volumes of Archaeologia Baltica in PDF format:
http://www.ku.lt/leidykla/Archaeologia_BALTICA.php

You can only download the entire volume, not individual articles. eLABA does have some individual articles from 2006 and 2007, though.

Incidentally, Lietuvos virtuali Biblioteka (The Virtual Library of Lithuania) lets you search freely available journals if you click on the "e-žurnalai" link at the top right-hand side.

Remember the cool-looking Baltic Costume Calendar with all of the gorgeous photos?

The amazing [livejournal.com profile] cathyr19355 has pointed out that BalticShop.com seems to be selling copies of it (no photo, but the text seems right.)
So if you were interested in getting a copy, this might be an easier way:

[livejournal.com profile] cathyr19355 has commented on the post about the Lithuanian calendar with a response from the distributor. (At the moment) it's the last comment on the livejournal post.

Via [livejournal.com profile] by_ethno, there is a 2010-2011 calendar of pre-17th century Lithuanian dress that has been released.

The official site is here with an e-mail address contact if you want a copy (no idea if they can read English).
There are beautiful teaser photos on the by_ethno entry.

The only author name that I recognise is Daiva Steponavičienė, an archaeologist involved with Lietuvos Pilys, and the folk group Sedula who are supposed to wear 15th century dress.

Thought it might be useful for someone to know.

Update: [livejournal.com profile] by_ethno has posted the 13-16th century teasers.

There's been a few updates to the Baltic Knowledge Pages (mostly Estonian and Free Journals & Databases).

If you have any links you desperately want put up there, let me know. I'm still fairly erratic in my updating though.

The Latvia Institute looks to have updated the English section of their website, with a general introduction to dress from 'Ancient' times (ie. 7th century) up to the 19th century. Even better, the little booklet the information is drawn from is available in PDF.

Thought people who are fans of pretty pictures might appreciate the link. :)

I have a PDF copy of "Books of Lithuanian and Old Prussian Interest and the Newberry Library, Chicago. To 1882." ISBN 5-420-01456-4 but can't figure out where it would have come from. Anyone know how to navigate the Newberry library website, since I can only find hardcopy versions online?

(If anyone is wondering about the content, it's a ~65 page PDF list, with the occasional photo, of pre 1882 Prussian and Lithuanian books held at the library, with a short description of it's contents and the physical book in Lithuanian and English.)

So, [livejournal.com profile] j_v_lynch found my unloved dress-diary and has been asking about clothing. I found some really cool stuff un-related to his question.

I found the lj of [livejournal.com profile] aslaug, and the scans put up of Latvian dress.

It's too hot to do anything serious right now. It's 28°C(82.4°F) inside. That's just not right.

LMAB RS F 22-103 Graduale, 14-16th century Gregorian chants, written in Vilnius. With video recordings of modern monks singing. Beautiful!
LMAB RS F 22-95 Procesionale, 1556. Is 'the only Mariënpoel [from the Netherlands?] chant collection that survived till nowadays'.
LMAB RS F 15-303 Ne visi medžiai artojams priduoti [Not all the trees are given to ploughmen] is the first known recorded Lithuanian folk song, dated to 1634.
LMAB RS F 15-284 Liber tabulatura Has melodies for dances noted down. Dated to ~1619.
Also known as the Oliwa/Braunsberg/Braniewo tablature. The videos have the music of the galliard and saltarello.

[livejournal.com profile] aslan42's family has the tradition of having one big Kris Kringle gift, so other than a graduation marsupial, I got from Quiet Press some Baltic-style tortoise brooches.

I plan to pull out my book on the Salaspils Laukskola finds, as well as the other stuff I can find on Liv brooches, (I'm pretty sure Rituals and Relations has a picture of the same find.)

And all of the information I've been collecting about the 'Gotlandic-style' [PDF] bead spreaders can be put to good use.

The Keave Project Website, moved in 2002, but is still up here:

The only weird bit, is that most of the English section is no longer online, so to look at the photos you need to go to the Estonian section (pildid then Leiud for photos of the finds)

The article argues that cremation cemetaries where numerous individuals were grouped together, alongside other cremations where the grave is solitary, and contains goods like swords, can indicate how the Iron Age Finns expressed their spirituality and religious practices.
