Christianity--Church History/Revised answer

Question
I know that 1 Corinthians 11 instructs women to wear head coverings in worship.  Theological issues aside, can you give me a basic history on what periods in time it has been acceptable and not acceptable for women to attend services without a covering?

Any denominational background will be fine.

Thank you, Moselle Boyce
