Artwork

European art: transitional period from Romanesque to Gothic.

Clothing

T-tunic styles continue esentially unchanged from the 11th century (often a little tighter fitting across the chest), as clothing for the common man or woman, and the lord or lady when working, or less fashionable. Court styles see the introduction of the bliaut for both sexes, a tightly fitted garment, often cut with silly dangly long sleeves. see: 12th century garb

Material Culture

Objects (eg silk) and ideas are being brought back from the crusades to western europe, resulting in a faster transition of ideas (eg clothing fashions) and sudden new fashionable objects.
