The Roman legions were equipped with the Montefortino helmet for centuries, but the Weisenau Imperial helmet began to replace it when Augustus was emperor. The cross bar riveted to the scull for deflecting cuts, ear cutouts, and shaped cheek pieces at the sides that limit the area of exposed face are characteristic of this advanced development.
This Roman army helmet – Imperial-type, known as Weisenau in Germany – has a sloping neck guard, typical Gallic eyebrows, and brass edging. Our Roman army helmet has a genuine leather liner and fits a maximum head size of 61 cm. It is made of 18 gauge carbon steel and weighs approx. 2.04 kg.
We also have a helmet stand for this item as pictured which is usually £19- but if purchased with the helmet is only £15-
