16 Gauge Steel
Includes Leather Lining
Weight: 2kg

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 version of the Viking "Spectacle Helm" is based on the “Gjermundbu Helmet”, the only Viking era helmet ever found in Scandinavia. It is one of the best value Viking Helmets available to buy in the UK.  It features crossed reinforcing straps over welded 16 gauge construction and is suitable for most re-enactment groups.  The eye-guard features an integral ridged nasal and rivet decoration. Includes adjustable leather liner and chinstrap.
