Viking helmet

Recommended Posts

There is an interesting article at thehistoryblog.com regarding a Viking era (9-10th century) helmet which was found in North Yorkshire in the 1950s.  

I would have posted this in historical blades but a helmet is designed to protect from blades and other things.  There may be something said for having a topic on armor, particularly since I know a number of people on IFI have made armor either as an exercise of for use in the SCA or LARP.

"By hammer and hand all arts do stand." 

Mod comment: Armor/armour discussions live in the "Cold Worked Iron and Steel" section.
