13C clothing

There are some excellent examples of 13C clothing preserved in the Museo de Telas Medievales, at the Convent of Las Huelgas in Burgos.
A PDF on ladies' caps/bonnets here
and website here. The heraldic hat may be familiar to viewers of the 1961 film El Cid, which, though set in the 11C, was based heavily on later mediæval romances (not to mention Fascist propaganda to facilitate filming on location) and costumed more in keeping with them.
I love this heraldic sideless surcoat!
