14 Gauge
Size L
Chin Strap
Weight: 2.1 kg

The Spangenhelm was a creation of the Scythians and Sarmatians from the Eurasian steppes.   By the 6th century it had become the most common helmet design in Europe. The word Spangenhelm is of German origin and refers to the “spangen” which were the metal strips that formed the helmet’s construction.  Spangenhelms were popular as they were relatively easy and cheap to produce. They were eventually replaced by stronger, but more expensive nasal helms with 1 piece skulls. Some of the nasal helmets shown on the Bayeux Tapestry seem to be of Spangenhelm construction.


This Archer’s Spangenhelm is one of the best available to buy in the UK. This style was made specifically for archers, the nasal being omitted to provide greater visibility. It is constructed from 14 gauge steel and is perfect for re-enactment. It features an adjustable leather spider-style liner and buckled chin strap.
