Italo-Norman Helmet 16g with Leather Liner

The main weakness of the standard Norman helmet was that most of the face as well of the sides of the head were exposed. Something that the Muslim Horse Archers exploited to deadly effect during the Crusades. This saw the development of a face plate that eventually evolved to wrap around the entire head to become the medieval Great Helm.

  • Total height approx. 36cm
  • Internal width from side to side approx. 18.5cm
  • Inside diameter from the forehead to the back of the head approx. 22cm
  • Material thickness of the face plate, as measured at the hemmed edge approx. 3.4mm
  • Leather liner inside
  • The helmet is equipped with chin strap

A leather liner is provided and this can be adjusted so the helmet can comfortably fit most head shapes.

A padded arming cap should be worn with this helmet and for additional protection around the base of the neck and shoulders a maille standard (collar) can be worn over the arming cap.
