Clothing and outward appearance as a means of expressing individual and collective identity were of great importance in Late Antiquity. This publication is the first interdisciplinary overview of source material and provides a critical view of opposing statements on the value of written sources, images, and archaeological finds on habitus barbarus. Based on these sources, the book develops not only a new perspective on the meaning of "barbaric" clothing but also sheds new light on the Late Roman "barbarians" themselves.
