Viking Hood, Skjoldehamn, various colours

The look and cut of this hood or gugel is based on an archaeological find dated between the 10th and 12th century. In 1936, a fully clothed bog body was discovered on a farm in Skjoldehamn, Norway. Whether it was a woman or a man could not be clearly determined until today. Characteristic of the hood found on the body are the pointed hem with an inset square piece on the chest.

The pattern of the gugel we offer here is mainly composed of rectangular panels. It is equipped with a small cord in the neck which allows for individual adjustment. The gugel is worn like a separate hood and just covers the shoulders. It is made of 100% cotton canvas and is therefore not waterproof. However, a certain water-repellent effect can be achieved with a little waterproofing spray.

If you want to be historically accurate, the gugel did not strictly speaking belong in the time of the Vikings. Still, it is often worn by both men and women to complete their Viking garb. This headgear is also nice addition for all other early to high medieval costumes.

As authentic as possible, as modern as necessary!
This medieval hood is part of Battle-Merchant's line of period clothing and medieval garments for men, women and children. From the first sketch to the last stitch, this garment was planned, designed and handcrafted with particular attention to detail. Our clothes are modeled (sometimes accurately, sometimes less so) on historical examples, grave finds and original museum pieces where they exist. We always endeavour to keep the necessary adjustments to today's standards, e.g. in terms of size and manufacturing process, to a minimum. Just see for yourself!
