This weekend we attended our first ever medieval market as part of the reenactors of the event, rather than as part of the public. We sold our spiced wine (lutendranck & hypocras) in our stall, that was a part of a larger camp, which we shared with a friend and his family. It was a bit crowded but it was fun and we had a great time. We sold most of our wine, so we were very happy about that.
Nobel headgear became quite elaborate during the period – we have all see the “princess hats” which were actually worn for a period of time. Some are very high, other very wide and some gives really different head shapes. Married women would generally always wear something on their heads when out in public. Women are almost always shown to have their hair styled in some way even in pictures of them dressing or bathing. Both men and women would wear hoods with long tails called a liripipe (studshætte).
