Group 1: Elements of Dress

Ulla Mannering, Annemarie Stauffer (spokespersons)

Research will concentrate on “elements of dress” i.e. the single elements of different kinds of clothing. The Study Group 1 will provide basic information about elements of dress in different sources; archaeology, iconography and epigraphy according to the different capacities in the group. This will serve as the basis for further research in the other study groups, such as “self and Society”, “Cult …”. Further individual work will concentrate on compiling elements of dress.

Results are presented and discussed within the group at the General Meetings.

The group is aware of the fact that not all regions and provinces of the Roman empire are included in single projects. Important missing parts are dress in Gaul, dress in Spain, dress in Britain.
