Kamil Rabiega has collected information concerning virtually all artifacts which can be linked to Scandinavians living In the Viking period, i.e. from the 9th to 11th century. The interpretation of such, usually fragmentary survivals of clothing, was facilitated by his own experience with the experimental reproduction of historical techniques of spinning, dyeing, weaving, cutting, sewing and embroidering clothes supplemented by an overview of iconographic sources. Translating those usually heavily stylized images on information about specific types of clothing requires a lot of imagination and knowledge, backed by historical, archaeological and ethnographic well-roundedness. The author of this book has such knowledge, which resulted in an unexpected wealth of implications.

Kamil Rabiega is right, writing in the preface that his book is a 'handbook of knowledge on Viking clothing'.
