<<What kind of needles were used for circular knitting?>>

Just like those used for socks, mittens, etc. -- double pointed straight
needles.

<< Do you know of what type of heel I should do for a 15th or 16th century
stocking?>>

Very rudimentary heel flap -- very short, all garter stitch. No shaping in
the instep, no clock at all.
