59130Re: 14th Century Bra Kind of Found in Austrian Castle
- Jul 26, 2012Hi all,
The scientist who is working on these finds, Beatrix Nutz, thinks they are men's underpants. Unfortunately, she has not yet found someone who is willing to pose for a photo in a reproduction of these underpants. Her male colleagues are scientists and not underwear models. This is what she said in an interview, published in the German-language Die Welt newspaper:
Ms. Nutz is writing her doctoral thesis on these finds and plans to have an article on the underwear items in the NESAT XI publication (abstract of the NESAT talk is on http://www.nesat.org/abstracts/lecture_nutz.pdf).
for more on the finds (also in German, but some of the linked articles are in English).
you can see people sorting through the textile finds - there seems to be a lot more stuff than just the underwear!
