History of the Roman Soldier Helmet

The galea was the Roman soldier’s helmet used for warfare in the past. Several murmillones and gladiators wore the bronze galea together with a face mask with decoratives. These were usually fish on a crest.

Originally, these Roman soldier helmets were greatly influenced by the Etruscans. They were individuals who used the Nasua types of helmets. Greeks from the south also influenced the Roman soldier helmet’s style in its early history.

Primary evidence of these pieces were archaeological finds that are usually incomplete or damaged.

In the past, the Roman Army utilized a variety of Roman soldier helmets for warfare. The types of pieces used depended on the rank and unit of the warrior.

Throughout the centuries, these helmets underwent a plethora of transformations, developments, and changes. The dimensions, materials used to produce them, and their shape changed until the best gear was made for the warriors.
