The coat, also known as the "caftan" or "Rus riding coat," may have
been an explicitly eastern (Swedish/Rus) phenomenon. We have solid
evidence of it only at Birka in the ninth and tenth centuries. It is a long
coatlike overgarment, buttoned from neck to waist and decorated with
specialized and elaborate metal trimmings. The remains of five such coats
were found, each with a row of cast metal shank-buttons; several other
coats were identified which, while they had the right sort of elaborate
trimmings, had no associated buttons. Wood or bone buttons, however,
would leave little or no trace in a burial, and it is likely that these
coats were also buttoned (Hägg 1986, 68). It is thought that this
garment was borrowed or adapted from the Byzantine skaramangion, which was
the standard day garment for the Emperor and his court (Geijer 1983, 99).

i went a'viking - and found some amazing things (since
last time I was
hunting on viking garb) -

here are some quick links with brief descriptions -
but I got blown
away by some others which I have included just because
they were cool!
(and I hadn't seen) (like the LA museum exhibit on
10th century viking,
and book!)

Also, Thor Heyerdahl is finally having a movie made,
and before his
death, his last dig was in Russia - titled "the search
for Odin" (and real
historical data leading to him as a real person -
search the (
aftenposten in english) Norway's newspaper) or plunk
in Thor
Heyerdahl+aftenposten in english) Very recent
article!)

if you simply search: viking+trousers you will
get a wealth!)

Anyways, here's some links -
