In the 10th century, the clothing of people around the Europe was pretty similar. Women wore long dresses, and men used knee-length shirts. They wore leather shoes, different headdresses (hats and kerchiefs). Of course, all the garments were handmade and hand-dyed, as well as the accessories and jewelry. Warriors used hauberks (worn over thick and warm shirts or tunics) and metal helmets. There is certain romanticism in the ancient way of life and way of attiring.
