    Elizabethan bonnet

    What sorts of bonnets would be historically accurate for wearing with a 16th century great kilt? Do you have pictures?

    The only Elizabethans that have ever been in Scotland have been since 1953 so something you would buy nowadays is perfectly correct.

    They look like this:



    There's probably someone in the US knitting them, but I'm unaware of them. Kirstie Buckland in the UK knits very fine bonnets, however:

    Would it be unusual to see one made of leather in the 16th century?

    Not an expert on the period, but highly unusual I'd say. While a fighting man might wear a leather cap in lieu of a helmet, most hats & caps were probably made of felt, woven cloth, or knitted wool....

    Elizabethan period costume

    Greetings, 7 August, 536amMST

    Have a look at this website:
    http://www.theborderers.info/index.html

    These are a group who do re-enactments of the Border Reivers of the 16th century. They have many photo albums and some really good examples of the costuming of that time.

    Fide et Fortitudine, aye!

    I think that's why Phil made the statement that the era can only describe England and partially Ireland because she did not reign over Scotland at all.
    It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom -- for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.

    What does reigning have to do with it? What we call the Art Nouveau period is known in Germany as Jugendstil. So what in Scotland is the universally accepted phrase or expression for the period of time from 7 September 1533 24 March 1603? That is to say, what is in the curriculum that is taught in Scottish schools?

    Exactly. I presume it would be less confusing to say 16th century or define it more closely as early, mid or late 16th century. The Stuarts were on the throne in Scotland at that time but I have never heard their reign used to define the period.
