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
