Re: Frilled Veils

These (or similar called crusseler) were fashionable in 14th Century all over the Europe except France, might have evolved from late 12th Century Spanish headdress. There is a guy over here researching it and has written a piece on it. Availible via me at TORM. In czech only though :wtf:

Re: Medieval bed

When I visited Shakesperes house, they had beds there that looked very short. I was told that people avoided laying flat in bed as they believed laying flat encouraged the devil/death to com and take them. By sleeping slightly proped up in bed (this short one) they gave the impression of being awak...
