Hanwei Gjermundbu Helmet - AH2190N
Hanwei Gjermundbu Helmet
The Gjermundbu Helm is based on a classic Viking helm found in a Norwegian burial mound. Found in nine fragments, the helm has been re-constructed and is now housed in the Museum of National Antiquities in Oslo. It dates from around 970 A.D. and is considered to be the finest helm found from that era. The "spectacles" (officially "occularia"), provided excellent facial and nasal protection, while chain mail provided flexible protection to the back and sides of the neck. As with the original, our Gjermundbu helm is provided with a leather chin strap.
