Description

Details

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.

The Vendel period pre-dates the Viking age but Viking spectacled helmets were clearly influenced by the earlier Vendel helms. This late Vendel period helmet is constructed from 18 gauge steel and features a butted (zinc plated) steel ventail to protect the face and neck. Comes complete with adjustable leather spider style liner and buckled leather chin strap.
