A new pair of publications from the Latvian National Culture Centre: a 2017 wall calendar and a planner with photos of authentic replicas of 7th-14th century garb representing all the chiefdoms of Late Iron Age Latvia. This one is Latgallian (not sure of the century). I'm going to try to get some of these for balticsmith.com.

The main frame of the roundhouse would have been made of upright timbers, which were interwoven with coppiced wood - usually hazel, oak, ash or pollarded willow - to make wattle walls. This was then covered with a daub made from clay, soil, straw and animal manure that would weatherproof the house. The roof was constructed from large timbers and densely thatched.        All of the domestic life would have occurred within the roundhouse.

This sword offers eloquent testimony to the value that Celts placed on war and weaponry. Celtic artists often ingeniously integrated animal and human forms in the decoration of precious objects; here a warrior serves as the dramatic hilt for a double-edged sword. With its carefully defined features and finely drawn curls, the figure’s head contrasts with the abstract form of the limbs and body.
