The Norman Helm was made famous by the Norman victory at Hastings, worn by Saxon and Vikings in the 10th and 11th centuries. They can be dated back to the 6th century and were used as late as the 15th century. The helmets get their name from their solid 'nasal' shape, which is borrowed from 11th-13th century style. A traditional Norman style of helmet, this helm features a convex top with a subtle central ridge, which serves the purpose of diverting force and blows away from the top of the helm and down its sides.
