The main frame of the roundhouse would have been made of upright timbers, which were interwoven with coppiced wood - usually hazel, oak, ash or pollarded willow - to make wattle walls. This was then covered with a daub made from clay, soil, straw and animal manure that would weatherproof the house. The roof was constructed from large timbers and densely thatched. All of the domestic life would have occurred within the roundhouse.

A new pair of publications from the Latvian National Culture Centre: a 2017 wall calendar and a planner with photos of authentic replicas of 7th-14th century garb representing all the chiefdoms of Late Iron Age Latvia. This one is Latgallian (not sure of the century). I'm going to try to get some of these for balticsmith.com.

Iron Age Owl Brooch Unearthed in Denmark Shaped like an owl, the brooch, which has large orange eyes and colorful wings, dates to the Iron Age, and would have been used to fasten a man’s cloak. “There are very few of these types of fasteners,” archaeologist Christina Seehusen of Bornholm Museum told The Copenhagen Post. It was probably made along the Roman frontier, in Cologne or another nearby town.
Women's clothing from the swamps in the Huldremose in Denmark-unfortunately, the date is "the iron age"... (L) garment is wool, woven... "Cape" was probably lamb...
