Step-By-Step Solution

1. What did excavations of the peat-bog burials reveal about the dress of the Teutonic peoples?

The acidity of the peat marshes has preserved a wealth of perishable materials including the corpses themselves that

became mummified by immersion in the bogs. These graves have yielded woven and knitted textiles, animal skins, reed baskets, bronze ring-money and ornaments, wooden utensils and implements, even entire burial carts. Identify the important costume finds from the peat-bog burials and what they confirm about the manufacture of clothing and accessories in the early Middle Ages.

The most common garment found with many of the male bodies was a saie, a short cloak similar to that of the Roman sagum. Other men’s clothing included various types of trousers, notably an example with belt loops and socks attached. Wrap skirts were also found. Extant women’s clothing from the bog burials included a skirt made of plaid wool and a wide peplos girded and pinned at the shoulders similar to the ancient Greek style. The Egtved girl wore a cropped T-shaped tunic and a short skirt constructed of open strands of corded wool knotted at the waistline and hem. Lambskin and woven shawls were also discovered. Accessories included belts and bronze ornaments, a men’s hat made of a looped weave similar to terrycloth, and a woman’s bonnet made of crocheted yarns. These bog burial garments reveal a widely varied assortment of clothing styles produced with sophisticated weaving techniques, most especially complex plaid patterns and surface textures. Bronze ornaments and gold jewelry

confirm the survival of metallurgy technologies in the Dark Ages.
