- Greetings to the list! I came across this message by accident, and
wondered if anyone has found any references for this period.
My persona is 10th century Irish, and so far all I have been able to
come up with is the Dublin Viking cap (basically an arming cap that
comes to a point at the top of the head) and the Book of Kells image
of the Virgin Mary, who appears to be wearing a veil draped over her
head, with the loose end tossed over her left shoulder. Does anyone
have an alternate interpretation of the Book of Kells image, or any
other sources for early period Ireland?
Thank you :-)
