Recently I was at a university ceremony to confer an honorary doctorate degree where, along with the certificate, something that looked like a capelet was presented. What is this called?

I'm not sure because I wasn't there, but I believe it's called an honour stole. :D

The origins of academic dress date back to the 12th and 13th centuries, when universities were taking form. The ordinary dress of the scholar, whether student or teacher, was the dress of a cleric.
