Changes done to the article about the Viking Aprondress. Non-significant changes, like fixing spelling errors, mending broken links or clearing up confusing language is not mentioned in this list.
Updated the Birka evidence and interpretations of the Birka material with information from Hägg's 1986 analysis, and restructured both texts for clarity.
Added new information about the possible dating of the Køstrup find.
Rewrote my interpretation of the smokkr to use the Køstrup fragment as the basis for concluding on a general shape of the smokkr.
Minor adjustments of the texts about wool or linen, decoration, colour and length for clarity. Added references.
Updated the evidence on graves from Værnes, Tråstad and other minor finds reported on by Blindheim (1945). Added photographs of the textiles.
Structured the text on construction and use of loops better and did minor adjustments to better take into account the graves outside of Birka that show evidence of more than two loops inside each brooch, and the evidence provided by Blindheim (1945) on alternative solutions to the loops.
Updated the evidence and interpretation of the Haithabu find. Added references in the text, and added more information on two graves with smokkr fragments.
Finally updated the evidence and interpretation of the Køstrup find to take into account the updates I did on my Køstrup article in 2015 and 2016.
Making the article easier to navigate and read: Introduced an index. Kept my thoughts on reconstruction choices, but removed the details of my specific reconstructions, and instead referred to the case study articles on them. I also moved the collection of reconstruction patterns by others to a separate page. The article is still 74 pages long.
Rewrote the paragraphs of the Pskov find and its interpretation after I read the Pskov report yet another time and realised that the number of loops were even more uncertain than I first thought.
Added new pictures of my Køstrup reconstruction, showing that the smokkr can be combined with the early stages of pregnancy.
Added information on a smokkr inspired by the Køstrup evidence that I have made. I also made some changes to the text concerning the interpretation of the Køstrup find after realising that the decoration wasn't as impractical as I first believed, and added a new photograph of a museum reconstruction.
Added information on a smokkr inspired by the Haithabu evidence that I have made.
Added my thoughts on how to approach the reconstruction of a smokkr (and fixed some broken links).
I have added information about the Veka find of a 27 cm long fragment of a smokkr front and the at Hopperstad find of possibly two woollen smokkrs worn on top of each other.
I finally managed to find an article by Annika Larsson about her reinterpretation of the Pskov find. Before this, all I had was a couple of press releases. As a result I have clarified the information on the interpretation of the Pskov find and rewritten Annika Larsson's proposed reconstruction.
I found two new reports about the Køstrup find (grave ACQ), and was allowed to examine the textiles at Odense Bys museum. As a result I have rewritten the information about the find and its interpretation and added new illustrations and photographs. Also modified information about the find under the sections about the construction and use of the loops and the decoration of the smokkr.
