Masks and Mumming in The Nordic Area is the first detailed introduction to the costume and disguise traditions of the Nordic area past and present. It not only analyses the nature, history and development of these customs, but also presents a number of case studies demonstrating different ways of dealing with this material. The combined work of twentythree scholars from the fields of drama, folkloristics, cultural studies and ethnology, it hopes to open new doors into a field of folkloristic that has been neglected for decades.
