Splendid...the major overview of Anglo-Saxon clothing and textile from the 5th to 11th centuries. [...] Owen-Crocker has become the authority reconstructors call upon... A wise and scholarly book. --Toebi
This new version is doubly welcome, both as a largely intact reappearance of a valued text and a very substantial and deftly added text of totally new material.. Justif[ies] totally the term `encyclopaedic'... This most valuable up-dating is long likely to be an invaluable tool for historians of Medieval costume and [those] who have practical interests related to it. --Medieval Dress and Textile Society Newsletter
A well-documented and clearly organized source for all aspects of medieval clothing. [...]a perfect companion for both the serious scholar of period dress and...enthusiasts who desire to wear historically authentic garments. --Renaissance Magazine

The hallmark of a book's quality on this subject may be the unanswered questions it leaves. A poor book will answer more queries than the scholarly evidence can support. A fine book - such as this one - will answer enough questions to satisfy the eager learner and spur enough inquiry to encourage continued research into the deeply cached field of Anglo-Saxon cultural history.
Well, written, good illustrations, excellent clarity, and a pleasure to read. Deserves all five of those stars!
