The analysis of silk is a fascinating topic for research in itself but here, focusing on the 9th and 10th centuries, Marianne Vedeler takes a closer look at the trade routes and the organization of production, trade and consumption of silk during the Viking Age. Beginning with a presentation of the silk finds in the Oseberg burial, the richest Viking burial find ever discovered, the other silk finds from high status graves in Scandinavia are discussed along with an introduction to the techniques used to produce raw silk and fabrics. Later chapters concentrate on trade and exchange, considering the role of silk items both as trade objects and precious gifts, and in the light of coin finds. The main trade routes of silk to Scandinavia along the Russian rivers, and comparable Russian finds are described and the production and regulation of silk in Persia, early Islamic production areas and the Byzantine Empire discussed. The final chapter considers silk as a social actor in various contexts in Viking societies compared to the Christian west.

From Nille Glaesel's Introduction: For many years I have worked with textiles, making Viking clothes and shoes. I have also tanned leather and worked with a reconstruction of Osebergrevlene for the Viking Museum, Lofotr. I am often asked about patterns for the Viking's beautiful garments. It is through this work that I have seen the need for a book which makes it easy for anyone to sew their very own Viking costumes, based on the sparse findings that have been gathered and preserved from the Viking period. Although the findings are few, they nevertheless give us some clear guidelines for cut, use of materials and techniques. My main goal has not been to reconstruct typical garments from this era, but to show the cut of clothing from the Viking Age (A.D. 780 to 1030) and make it accessible to most people. There are many who are interested in the Viking era and who would like to sew their own costume, but it is difficult to get hold of the correct materials. Within archaeology, textiles have traditionally not been given priority. It is said that clothes maketh the man, and I believe that textile research is important if we really want to learn about our past. Fortunately, there have been some recent developments and pioneers in this field, and I am thrilled with their work and wait excitedly for future publications. In this book I have used machine-made fabrics and sewn all hidden seams with a sewing machine. In the section on sewing-techniques, I have used illustrations to show methods known and used by the Vikings. If you want to weave the fabrics on a warp weighted loom with yarn spun on a drop-spindle, then you are close to a reconstruction.
