Delving Deeper into History

It's a common misconception to imagine Vikings charging into battle with metal helmets. Surprisingly, the dominant material was likely leather, lightweight yet sturdy. The iconic image of horned helmets associated with the Vikings is more fiction than fact. Such helmets, if they existed, were ceremonial, predating the Viking era. This popular horned helmet imagery can be traced back to the dramatic interpretations of 19th-century operas, showcasing how art can influence and reshape historical perceptions.

  • Universal Adaptability: Crafted with precision, the helmet ensures a comfortable fit for most head sizes, merging historical design with contemporary wearability.

Leather Viking Helmet

I was extremely pleased with the Viking helmet I recently purchased. The embossed Tree of Life really stood out on the brown boiled leather, and the chain mail neck coif was very well done. Overall, this is an item I would recommend to anyone who appreciates Viking culture and history.
