Herjolfsnes no.93

This is our reconstruction of a stocking or stunt hose from 14th century London, based on various extant fragments. All fragments seemed to have been designed for a very small person, with the heel circumference of only 18 cm.  The extant fragments of the stocking (find #237) are displayed as grey shaded areas on the picture. They form an incomplete garment, so to reconstruct the stocking correctly, we used the extant fragments from find #235 as an example of the upper art of the stocking and the sole, and displayed the reconstruction as white part on the picture.
