Notes:

The costume of the Normans of both sexes was chiefly Oriental, borrowed from the Crusades of this period (Figs. 783, 790). The most remarkable exception was the single knotted sleeve of the ladies, as shown in Fig. 790. (p. 215)

Two ladies are shown, female nobility, in twelfth-century costume: long dresses and things for which I have no name, and one of them holds a cross on a stick, possibly a small weapon for fending off unwelcome suitors.

The book erroneously refers to figure 791 rather than to 790; I have emended the extract here.
