The first essay by Olga Magola, "Multicultural Clothing in Sixth-Century Ravenna," makes an important study of the textiles in a settlement or donation charter registered in the Gesta Municipalia of Ravenna in 564....The second essay by Anne Hedeager Krag, "Byzantine and Oriental Silks in Denmark, 800-1200," produces interesting work on Danish silks, and as the author notes, "brings together Danish silks up to 1200 for the first time" (37) but also includes new scientific evidence on the colours of the silks and suggests the ways in which silks reached Denmark through trade routes and mercantile connections.
