This replica provides an optimal protection during re-enactment battles. The helmet is exceptionally strong and was therefore popular during the Middle Ages. The great helmet or pot helmet was developed around the 12th century during the time of the crusades and it was used until the 14th century by both knights and heavy European infantrymen. In these centuries it changed from a simple design with only narrow slits for the eyes and mouth to a rounded helmet. The great helmet provided more protection than the earlier nasal helmet but it reduced the peripheral vision and it had limited ventilation so generally it was put on just before the fight. A smaller helmet, like a secret of bascinet, was often worn underneath the great helmet.

This is a replica of the Pembroke helmet which is nowadays part of the Burrell Collection in Glasgow. It has a linen inlay.
