Roman Clothing and Fashion

Be the first to review this product

There is plenty of information about military dress in Roman Britain and the rest of the Roman Empire, but the evidence for civilian dress has not been comprehensively looked at since the 1930s.In this richly illustrated survey, Alexandra Croom describes the range and style of clothing worn throughout the Western Empire and shows how fashions changed between the first and the sixth centuries. After a short introduction to the evidence (from archaeology, art and literature), and to the manufacture of clothing and its use in status display, she systematically treats male and female dress, looking at the tunic, toga (for men), mantle (for women) and cloaks; underwear, footwear and specialist wear; hats, hairstyles and jewelry. The book concentrates on the clothing work in the Mediterranean region, but includes a section on provincial fashions.A fine and varied corpus of illustrations (including color plates) helps to bring the everyday world of the Roman Empire to life.
