So it was that the working cap and the girl wearing it came to be called Penn Sardin - Penn being the Celtic word for head which we sometimes notice linked to headlands in the west of Britain - and Sardin being...well...sardine. Does anyone know if the traditional costumes of North Sea fisher folk has ever been the subject of a comparative study? I would be interested to hear.
