Men's cloack from Bocksten

This short cloak from late 12th-13th century was found together with a tunic, hose and a hood. It was made from 2 pieces of fabric 60cm-wide and some leftovers. Judging by the length of other garments, it was probably made for a man approximately 155-165 cm tall, so as to end just a bit above the knee. It was probably worn with the opening over the right arm.
