Kyrtill
The Kyrtill is a costume for women, designed by the artist Sigurður Guðmundsson in the 19th century (C. 1870). It was designed to look like Viking-age costumes. It however incorporates a hat similar to the one on the skautbúningur. While Sigurður’s vision of the Viking age costume remains popular, costumes designed to more closely resemble archaeological finds have gained some popularity as well. | Sources: [x] [x] [x]
