#037 Spangenhelm

This type of Spangenhelm (so called since constructed of spangen or plates, riveted together by means of connecting bands) was in use throughout Europe for hundreds of years from the beginning of the Migration Period until the early Viking age. The few remaining examples, from graves of Frankish chieftains, are decoratively embossed and glided. Our version eliminates the embossing and gilding in an attempt to reproduce the type worn by the common soldier. The body of the helmet is 16 gauge steel, with a 14 gauge nasal.

Original: Circa 6th Century Germanic, Find place Torricella Peligna in the Abruzzi, Ancona Museum
