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.
