Hello! I am new to the list, so let me introduce myself.
I am Nadezhda Volynskaiia, a Russian name in search of a more
concrete persona. I am considering 8-10th century, but haven'treally
gone beyond that.
So, my questions are probably numerous, but if someone could send me
some reading suggestions, I can probably whittle them down.
And, as the subject line states, I would like more information about
kokoshniks and/or other headgear. I searched through the archives,
but never found the definitive answer on what shape of headgear comes
from what region and is worn by whom. Is there such a source? Could
someone tell me where to start looking?
Thanks very much!
