Clothing, textiles, and textile work in Snæfellingasögur - a comperhensive analysis
This thesis was written with clothing, textiles, and textile work inSnæfellingasögur (the sagas of Snæfellsness, a subgroup of the sagas of Icelanders) as its primary focus. Clothing in the sagas of Icelanders has been studied before, but never have the sagas of Snæfellsness been the primary focus nor have textile-related references been subjected to a comprehensive analysis. An overview of methods used was given in ch. 2, while ch. 3 outlined the category of Snæfellingasögur and each text in the subgroup. Ch. 4 provided the necessary background information about pre-modern textile production. The analysis in ch. 5 was divided into several subchapters: the references to clothing, textiles, and textile work were first analysed by item, then by material and colour. The analysis was followed by a discussion in ch. 6.
