Herjolfsnes no.76

This is an example of a short hood widened on the shoulders by insertions. It was square, not round on top of the head. The body of the hood was pretty well-preserved. Some suggest that it could have had a liripipe, but the latter has never been found. Based on the shape of the hood, it is impossible to determine whether it did or did not have a liripipe, as a similar hood has been found without a liripipe, as well as a similar hood with a liripipe 67 cm long. End of 14th century.
