On August 10 I will be giving a lecture on frilled veils during the second half of the 14th century in North West Europe. Should you happen to be in the neighbourhood I'd love it if you could come and visit. The lecture will take place in the Kapittelhusgarden (click on this link to book your seat, and for the record: I'm not making any mony out of this, the fee is for the accommodation). This lecture will explore the frilled veil in different regions of Northwest Europe, focussing mainly on the period 1350-1450. I will also elaborate on the construction and arrangement of these veils. Some of this information you can find in my final thesis, but the geographical focus of the lecture will be much broader. Also I will be adding new evidence I have found since writing my thesis.
One day later there will also be a lecture on fabric and cut in medieval Norse clohting by Margareta Nockert (sadly, this lecture will be held in Swedish).
These lectures are part of the medieval event celebrating 650 years of the Battle of Wisby that will run from 5 trough 10 August.
