Not sure that "wimple" and "11th century" go together, it's a heafodhrægl in Old English, I guess headrail in modern.

I would try the Regia Anglorum site, they have a great deal of useful info on that period:

that's a bit picky, isn't it?

'wimple' is a clear enough word that you knew what was menat by it, as did I, so what's the point in being semantically pedantic?


anyway. pm me for any help you need.

To join in the pickiness...Brother Ranulph, you recommend the Regia site, where they use the word wimple in their description. :wink:

fair point

:lol:

just irritates me when people try to ascribe specific words in that way, when it's completely unnecesary in terms of conveying meaning.

one of the reasons research into padding (for eg) is so difficult is that the victorians tried to do just that, so now there's all this needless confusion

Agreed - it's pretty obvious what Loubee was referring to.

Do people do this kind of thing to demonstrate their perceived superior knowledge? To make the other feel stupid? Out of an overblown sense of, "I must educate you thickies"? Or is is it that they simply wish to help but don't realise that they come across as sounding completely tactless and boorish?

You are all thickets.

If it is a fabric headcovering it is a HEADSCARF. Mrs Queen wears one. That is all anyone needs to know becuase I DO know everything and have a Brownie badge to prove it.

Looks like somebody's beenat the Pepsi :D

Tuppence has just disolved into laughter trying to work out which badge
There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.
