Looks very Daenerys Targaryen and I'm OK with that

It's rare that everyday garments of any kind survive from this a period, let alone underwear.'


/I'd like a castle like that.

That girl had some serious crotch rot.

I would suspect that the "panties" are more likely a garment worn when the woman was menstruating, lined with disposable rags or other absorbent material, rather than for sexual titillation or daily wear.

The explanation that the clothes were walled up when the castle was expanded doesn't seem to be a very reasonable.
"Honey, have you seen my laundry?
"Oh shiat, we must have built a wall over it. Sorry."

Could it possibly have been "old clothes" used for insulation or something along those lines?

It's not like there's advanced technology involved in showing off a attractive female body.
 
2012-07-17 11:41:46 AM  
That's questionable subby.

Maybe Farkettes should post their pics so we can make an accurate determination?

This style of garment hasn't changed much in 500 years because the female anatomy hasn't changed much in 500 years. Much.

Sometimes they skipped the undies:

Eleanor: I even made poor Louis take me on Crusade. How's that for blasphemy. I dressed my maids as Amazons and rode bare-breasted halfway to Damascus. Louis had a seizure and I damn near died of windburn... but the troops were dazzled.

Those panties are pretty sexy, not on the same level of a thong, but not bad at all for the 16th century.

Eleanor sounds like an attention whore. If she really wanted to help, she'd have done a Joan of Arc, not theatrics. Doing that mess just proves biatches are worthless in battle. Did she actually use a sword or bow or mace? or continue cosplaying?

Beatrix Nutz, of Innsbruck University, who made the find, initially faced scepticism but radiocarbon-dating tests confirmed her suspicions.

Yep, she found them.

Pretty much, dude. I know a little of her story, and she's supposed to be a proto-feminist, but that whole scene with the cosplay never sat well with me. It didn't sound 'ride or die', it just sounded like a rich chick and other rich chicks playing at the manly arts while being completely and willfully protected from the true costs of war. Like a medieval version of straight chicks pretending to be lesbians: the fakeness is a turnon, but the chicks don't really want to live the life or live the reality, and drop it like a bad habit until the next time they need to hold onto their man's attention by any means necessary.

Not Joan, though. That chick was real. It was not a game to Joan, it was survival and honor. Joan was hard. If that's how it went with Eleanor and her fellow rich-chicks-in-waiting, and they really did kick some ass, then my apologies.

I'll have to admit, that's a heck of lot more sexy than I thought it would be.

I guess I'd have White Knighted milady back in the day.

Yeah this may be the first time I've found a pair of period panties sexy.

On another note, ladies love to hide their period panties, probably explains why they were sealed behind a wall.

Would sell real well in Japan.
 
2012-07-17 01:42:22 PM  
I wish the article had the measurements of the pictured items, they'll radio carbon date something but not tell you if it is a B cup, and the chest size. Same as the waist size for the panties/napkin holder. Someone should be able to look at the cord and figure out where it was knotted most often.
