Being a former resident of The Barony of Caer Anterth Mawr in the Kingdom of
Northshield, my good friend, the Baronness Kateryn, has asked me to extend
the invitation and let those know far and wide that this is a rare
opportunity for individuals in the SCA to join in at Marquette University in
Milwaukee, WI. If you travel to the Northern regions on a regular basis, you
may want to add this to your stops. If you don't, you may want to consider
making the journey! Her Excellency looks forward to entertaining gentles
from all of the known world kingdoms!

The Barony of Caer Anterth Mawr and the Marquette University Medieval
Society Are proud to present
A Day of Lectures on Medieval Dress
Robin Netherton is a researcher specializing in Western European dress of
the Middle Ages. Since 1982, she has given lectures and workshops on
medieval clothing for academic audiences, historical societies, reenactment
groups, and other organizations. An experienced costumer as well as an
academic researcher, she addresses both the practical aspects of medieval
clothing construction and the significance of costume in history, art, and
literature. Her lectures emphasize approaches for researching medieval dress
and ways to avoid common myths and mistakes.
Ms. Netherton is co-editor (with Gale Owen-Crocker) of the academic journal
<http://www.boydell.co.uk/MEDSES.HTM> Medieval Clothing and Textiles. As
founders of the study group DISTAFF, she and Dr. Owen-Crocker organize
sessions on medieval dress and textiles each year at the International
Congresses on Medieval Studies held in America and England. Ms. Netherton's
recent published papers have focused on the tippet (a 14th-century sleeve
decoration) and the development of the Norman hanging-cuff style; a paper on
14th century fashion in Greenland is at press.
Ms. Netherton studied journalism and medieval English literature at the
University of Missouri and did graduate work in manuscript studies and book
arts at Cornell University and the University of Iowa. To support her
academic habit, she works as a freelance editor and writer.
