My only additional desire would be for a summary of the recent research on the history and demise of the Greenland colony (and maybe an explanation of the two-page statement in Inukitut (?)).
If you are a costumer or a scholar or a fan of weaving in different circumstances from the ones we enjoy now, this is a rewarding and fascinating book.
By this I mean somebody who is really interested in making medieval garments themselves.
I would not recommend this book just for the pleasure of reading.
The quality of the weaving was superb, as evidenced by the many close-up views of vádmal (vathmal) cloth, and the author discusses its use as a trade good by the Norse Greenlanders in trade with the Inuit and fellow Europeans.
Expensive book - well worth it.
