Great Helm Black Prince
Fully battle-ready reconstruction of a late medieval great helmet. The original was probably worn by Edward, The Black Prince as a jousting and tournament helmet. The Great helmets were often worn over a smaller, lighter helmet (eg. bascinet). They were common in the Middle Ages throughout the Europe. Numerous contemporary illustrations (and miniatures) and finds from Germany, Flanders, England, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, etc. prove the popularity of this type of helmet. These helmets were worn among others at the Battle of Crecy (1346) and Poitiers (1356). The helmet has a very comfortable padded inlay.
