The rounded crown on the helmet serves as a decorative piece in this day and age. However, it was once used to divert attacks from the user’s head.
The thick band that’s present on our helmet keeps the helmet held together in place. Yet originally, it also functioned to enhance the protection of the user. It was essential for preventing assaults or debris on the wearer’s face.
Like the original helmet, ours features cheek protectors that drape nicely along the sides of the piece. It keeps the ears and eyes concealed while adding more security and protection to your face when the helmet’s worn.
Looking at the rear portion of our Roman cavalry helmet, you’ll see a long flap that also protects the nape. In the past, it was very much essential for protecting the wearer’s nape from trauma due to rear attacks.

The historical Roman cavalry helmet takes its name from the Roman cavalry. The term refers to the horse-mounted warriors of the Romans who fought throughout the Republican, Regal, and Imperial periods.
These soldiers wore helmets that were very similar to that of the infantry’s pieces. Yet the difference between them was the added protection to the ears and more ornaments on the Roman cavalry helmet.
This type of medieval armor dates all the way back to the late 2nd/early 3rd century AD. It was acquired close to Crosby Garrett, Cumbria, England.
It’s said that the helmet may have been folded up then deliberately discarded in some artificial stone structure. The piece was believed to have been essential for ceremonial use instead of combat.
Plus, the helmet may have already been categorized as an antique by the moment it was buried. It’s categorized under the same type of helmet as the Newstead Helmet that was found in the year 1905. Plus, the design has some likeness with the Ribchester Helmet and Hallaton Helmet.
However, the Roman cavalry helmet’s facial features were more similar to the helmets found in the southern areas of Europe.
