Description

Details

The Morion Helmet was popular with the foot soldiers of European armies in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is thought to have originated in Spain and would certainly have been worn by soldiers of the Spanish Armada. This style of helmet is associated with soldiers of the English Civil War where it was commonly known as a "Pikeman's Pot". They were predominantly worn by the soldiers of Cromwell's New Model Army, along with breastplates and buff coats. Surviving morions from the siege of Colchester Castle in 1648 have been unearthed within its grounds and are now preserved in the castle. Some of the best preserved morions from the English Civil War can now be seen in the Royal Armouries collection in Leeds. The Morion Helmet is hand made from steel and is based on an authentic period design. It is decorated with brass rivets and features an adjustable leather liner. 18 gauge steel construction - not recommended for reenactment.
