Miniature Roman Legionary Helmet
This style Roman Legionary Helmet or "galea" dates from the 1st Century BC to the 2nd century AD. It is of the "Imperial Gallic" type, a style influenced heavily by the craftsmen of Gaul (France). This style of helmet was no doubt worn by Roman Legionaries during Julius Caesar's invasion of Britain and was worn by the soldiers that garrisoned Hadrian's Wall.
This miniature Roman Legionary helmet is handcrafted from steel and brass and features hinged cheek pieces. Comes complete with stand (may vary from that shown in picture). Helmet height 10cm
