It is with great caution that I ask this question as the very nature of its content creates such a strife. LET ME SAY BEFORE HAND, THAT IS NOT MY INTENT! I am doing research on another subject, I do believe the answer to my question is relevant. QUESTION At what point in english history did women begin to not wear something on their heads? It is my opinion that it was in the early 1500's, but I have no proof. I want to state that the purpose of this question is not debate the issue, but rather to seek facts.
