AN ARCHAEOLOGICAL FASHION SHOW: How Archaeologists Dress and How they are Portrayed in the Media. Cornelius Holtorf in Archaeology and the Media, Left Coast Press, 2007
I have always been aware of the difference between dirty boots archaeologists and suit and tie archaeologists. It amused me to no end to find an academic writing on the topic and better yet it refers to other papers on the same topic.
The article is well written with a great sense of humour. The photographs offered so that you can see the three main dress styles used by archaeologists alone are worth a smile. The article contains quotes from online discussions between different archaeologists, references to Time Team, survey results, and a discussion of why the topic matters at all. Quick hint - even the vikings knew people judge you by what you wear.
It doesn't add a great deal to the deep discussion of archaeologists fashion sensibility but on the plus side the descriptions of the different styles of Indiana Jones Fedora are invaluable in helping to understand when a particular style is de-rigeur.
