The cervelliere is a round, close-fitting steel skull cap. It was worn as a helmet during the medieval period. It was first introduced during the late 12th and was the primary head protection for Crusaders at that time and was worn either alone or over chainmail. By the late 13th century a great helm would usually be worn over a cervelliere. The back of the helmet grew longer over time and evolved into the bascinet. Cerveillieres were worn throughout the medieval period and even during the Renaissance. Cheap and easy to produce, they were much used by commoners and non-professional soldiers who could not afford more advanced protection. More information...
