I'm so glad I went to the trouble to flip through my new copy of Walton-Rogers' "Cloth and Clothing in Early Anglo-Saxon England." She's got a ton of information on early veils and lays out evidence for (and against) the kind of project I'm planning. (It seems - unsurprisingly, IMO - that there's more than one way to make and wear a conversion-era veil.)

Also, I ran into my copy of "A Veiled Reference," a Compleat Anachronist issue on veils. While it wasn't as useful, it did give me the forehead-slapping realization that, in addition to rectangular and half-circle veils, there could have been half-oval veils, which would solve some problems.
