Braided with a flourish, the hair on Osterby Man, a body dug from a bog in northern Germany, is wound in an Iron Age style called a Swabian knot. Tacitus, a Roman historian, wrote that free men belonging to a group called the Suevians wore their hair like this and that young warriors from other Germanic tribes copied the style. “They thus dress when proceeding to war," wrote Tacitus, “and deck their heads so as to add to their height and terror in the eyes of the enemy.”

Coola frillor från förr: SUEBIAN KNOT

Allt började med att en långhårig killkompis la upp en bild på fejjan med en hemmaihopfipplad märklig men tuff frisyr som påstods vara en vikingatida frisyr. Eftersom jag vurmar för allt som har med Vilda Män Från Förr & historiskt mode, blev jag givetvis eld å lågor. Jag har sedan ett år tillbaka försökt sprida frillan till långhåriga manliga vänner, men helt utan trovärdig källhänvisning. Jag har sökt på "viking hairdo" på google för att hitta belägg, men utan framgång. Mina manliga…

The Suebian knot is a hair style associated with Germanic peoples during the iron age. Many bog bodies recovered in what is now Denmark and northern Germany display this distinct hairstyle. Tacitus in his work "Germania" also describes this knot, and associates it particularly with the tribe called Suebi. The Suebi gave their name to modern day Swabia. -DK #hairstyle #germanic

The "Bog Bodies" of northwest Europe date from the Iron age, some 2000 years ago, and have been reserved throught the centuries by the peculiar conditions of peat bogs: low temperature and oxygen; high levels of tannins. Most died a violent death; strangulation, decapitation, stabbing or ritual sacrifice.

The "Osterby Man" was found in a peat bog in 1948 CE near Osterby, Germany and has been dated to between 75 and 130 CE. He sports a Suebian knot, a hairstyle associated with the Suebi (Alemanni). Now on display at the State Archaeological Museum at Gottorf Castle in Schleswig, Germany.
