This helmet is a replica of a Gallic (Celtic) original found in Foret de Rouvrey in Normandy. Helmets like these were mainly worn by Celtic horsemen. The Celts were known throughout the classical world for their cavalry. Helmets like these were far ahead of their time and offered considerably more protection than the Roman coolus or the early gallea helmets. This helmet is provided with a widened edge, which protects the wearer from falling projectiles such as arrows and stones. It has cheek flaps that also partially protect the face, but leave an optimal field of vision. The helmet ends in a tip and can be decorated with horsehair, as was probably the case with the original.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.

Please note. After finishing the product yourself, the warranty and return right expire. Celtic WebMerchant is not responsible for the obtained result.
