The women's undergarments can range from just below the knee to the ankle, depending on the time and fashion. In the past, the undergarments tended to be shorter, later they were worn longer. The undertunic is usually made of undyed linen, sleeves cut tight from elbow to wrist. The neckline is close to the neck and later also slit, often closed with a fibula.

GERMANI (Nemici di Roma)

The Ostrogoths' wanderings through Roman lands belie their origins as a powerful empire. Originally known as the Greuthungi, they are a confederation of distinct peoples originally from the Baltic coast who settled close to the Black Sea. Unfortunately, this means they were the first of the Germanic peoples to face the wave of Hun and Alani invasions that have shattered the known world. the Ostrogoths are vulnerable to Roman abuse and barbarian attack alike.
