Headdress Classification  

The following are sample images for the headdress classifications used in my study of fifteenth-century headdress. Clicking on the image/or headdress name will take you to the description and definition of the headdress used in the study. The names of the headdresses are derived from both period and modern names for these headdresses and may not reflect all period uses of the names.
