Description

Elaborate reconstruction of a late Roman cavalry helmet like the one found near Deurne, Holland. The intricate ornamentation auggests that the wearer was a very high-ranking officer. A Roman coin found near the helmet bears the date 319, so the helmet is very likely from the early 4th century.
 

The helmet's crown is made of 6 individual parts (spangen). The jowl pieces are easily moveable. The nape protection is attached with two buckled leather straps and is removable and adjustable. The helmet is hand-made from steel and brass and is comfortable due to its leather inlay. Nasal, jowel and nape pieces are covered with red leather on the inside.
