Description

I have a great selection of Anglo Saxon Viking Women’s costumes for Fancy dresses or those ‘special’ occasions when you want to be different from everyone else.  Saxon and Viking women wore very similar clothing which consisted of a full length, woolen or linen dress, and Peplos (apron).  The Peplos was joined at the shoulders with brooches which formed an ‘apron’.  In this costume, the peplos is pinned with 2 antique bronze, decorated pins, and joined across the chest with amber-style beads. For easy care, my tunics, dresses, and peplos are made from polycotton and each outfit comes with brooches, of various designs, and a braided belt.

Anglo Saxon Viking outfits have become increasingly popular, mainly due to the hit TV films and dramas.  However, for those of you in need of a little recap, here’s some insight into who the Saxons and Vikings were. The Saxon and the Viking age was a period in European history, in the early Middle Ages, between AD700 and 1100. Anglos Saxons were a cultural group that inhabited mainland Briton, whilst Vikings were Pagans from Scandinavia , (Sweden, Denmark and Norway), who explored by longboat other European countries, in search of trade, colonization, and in some cases to conquer.
