Years and years ago, I remember posting about the Estonian 'bellydance' hat from the 16th century. (Can't find the post though, I think it predates Livejournal implementing tags.)

It turns out, there are similar headband-like finds with coins from Viljandi in Southern Estonia. [PDF] The colour plates [PDF] are very nice.

If I only I could figure out what they were wearing from the neck down. :)

The Keave Project Website, moved in 2002, but is still up here:
http://www.arheo.ut.ee/keava/

The only weird bit, is that most of the English section is no longer online, so to look at the photos you need to go to the Estonian section (pildid then Leiud for photos of the finds)

The article argues that cremation cemetaries where numerous individuals were grouped together, alongside other cremations where the grave is solitary, and contains goods like swords, can indicate how the Iron Age Finns expressed their spirituality and religious practices.

And if anyone can help with what the Russian(?) titles are, it would be appreciated.

This is a mixture of medieval and ethnographic-related things, but if you see an interesting link feel free to pass it on to your journal, lists etc.!
