Gjermundbu Viking Helm antiqued

This helmet is a reproduction of an extant dark ages helm that was found in 1943 at Gjermundbu in the municipality of Ringerike in Buskerud, Norway. The Gjermundbu gravesite contained many artifacts which in the 10th century would have been of great value including a sword and mail armour, archery and horse riding equipment. The grave was therefor most likely that of a person of significant wealth and influence.

The Gjermundbu helm is the often described as the only complete helm from the Viking period and is also the only helmet from that era found in Scandinavia. The grave site is estimated to be from late 10th century, approximately 970. However, there is some speculation that the helmet may have been an heirloom item from an earlier period before 970.

The helmet has evidence of weapon damage and was most likely used in battle. It is now on display at the Museum of Cultural History of the University of Oslo.

This reproduction helm includes a riveted chainmail aventail which is attached to the base of the helm. The helm has an antique finish and a circumference of 68cm which enables the wearer to also fit a suitable padded coif or cap.

This helmet includes a riveted quality leather lining suspension and chinstrap with solid brass buckle that can be adjusted to better fit the wearer. The interior of the helm is also blackened to improve corrosion resistance.

Suitable for a 10th to 11th century Eastern European, Rus, Varangian or Viking persona at your next reenactment, LARP, SCA or Living history event.
