This blog is intended to be a record of my research of period clothing as I make my way through human history. I hope to eventually include information on every major culture in every major time period, starting with prehistoric European culture.

I’ve noticed in my travels around the web that there is excellent information available on clothing from different cultures, times & places, but not all on the same site. I am attempting to gather this wealth of information into one easily navigable location. Whenever possible I will try to include documentation so that the original sources will be available to you.

If you notice any inaccuracies in the information presented, please feel free to to comment respectfully. I am no expert in this field, despite my passion for it. Also if you wish to become a BHOWC author, have images you would like to add or an article you’d like to contribute, please let me know.

This site is my own personal project and is not affiliated with any group or institution. All content is property of the author Copyright 2006, except where noted. All rights reserved.

Thanks and enjoy!
