Medieval men’s and women’s costumes from the 1300s-1400s

For real? Wow.

definitely reproductions, not real.  Extant costumes only really go back to the 1700s.  Anything from that is extremely rare, much less complete costumes.  Not to mention that these are all in mint condition, no fading, no yellowing, no fraying, no holes.  Anything from medieval europe exists in scraps and pieces.

Beautiful medieval wall paintings restored in Welsh church

Conservation experts have spent several years restoring images at  St Cadoc’s Church in Llancarfan in southern Wales.  These paintings, which date from the 1480s or 1490s, include possibly the largest and best preserved image in the Great Britain of “St George and the Dragon” and four depictions of the Seven Deadly Sins.
