This steel replica is made after an original from Burgh Castle, Norfolk, England from the 3th-4th century AD. The later Roman helmet types weren?t based on Celtic designs anymore, but presumably on the helmets from the Persian Empire, which was emerging in that period.

The cheek plates are fastened with leather straps and the helmet has a leather inlay. The helmet is suitable for a head circumference up to 62 cm and its length is 22,5 cm (from nose piece to neck) and 19,7 cm from ear to ear.
