Viking Dress

Vikings dressed according to their wealth. The richer ones often wearing clothes that showed the styles in the countries they had visited.

The children wore simple smocks and tunics.

The women wore a simple undershift with long sleeves and an "apron" that was made of two rectangular pieces of cloth. The back piece had strings that attached to the front with brooches. Often the brooches were connected with beads. The women also carried a chain or belt with important things attached to it, like their eating knife, an ear scoop, keys, etc.

The men wore long tunic type shirts with leggings of wool and boots sometimes made from seal hides or shoes of leather. They wrapped they leggings around their legs with cloth or leather. They wore cloaks pinned with huge brooches always thrown back away from the sword arm.

Viking men loved jewelry as well as the women. Both men and women would have worn brooches, armbands, etc .
