    Hi, I’ve been trying to document Norse period hats and having a heck of a time finding extant examples. Will you share the source for this photo with me? Do you have any other information on the location, stye, materials, etc for the above example? Do you have any books that you would recommend for documenting Norse clothing from the early Migration era(aproximately 4th C) up to the 10th C?

    Thanks in advance for any references you can provide and share.

    Thank you for asking. That picture is from A.A. Ierusalimskaja, Die Gräber der Moshchevaja Balka: Frühmittelalterliche Funde an der Nordkaukasischen Seidenstrasse. Editio Maris, Munich 1996.

    It is Alanic, not Viking. That particular picture is described as a women’s hat. I don’t know of any surviving extant hat artifacts from the viking age, but there are far more experienced researchers on the ‘Net than I.

    Here is what the book says about that hat. Google translate should be able to fix you up with a translation if you need it.

    Inv. Nr.: Kz 6751
    Dm 18cm

    Rund, aus vier Zwickeln zusammengesetzt; vorne Reste einer Pelzverbrämung; Leinwand mit Pelzfutterresten an der Innenseite. Die jeweils paarweise vereinigten Zwickel ergeben unten am Kappenrand eine gebrochen Linie.

    Best of luck with your research! Please drop back by and share what you have learned.
