10th century Viking Varangian Rus Slav Gnezdovo helmet

Login to view prices

Our reproduction is directly based on an original helmet that has been found in a 10th-century Slavic-Varangian settlement named Gnezdovo or Gnyozdovo near Smolensk in modern-day Russia.

As many typically Scandinavian artefacts have been found at the same time as the helmet it makes it a nice choice for anyone wanting to reenact an eastern Viking / Varangian / Russ / Slav character.

On the other hand, such a helmet would seem far less appropriate if you’re portraying a western Viking raiding England for example.

This beautiful Gnezdovo helmet is HANDMADE from 16-gauge mild steel (14G available on request), lined with a comfortable and secure leather liner and a sturdy riveted mail aventail. A circumference of approx. 68 cm makes it fit almost all head sizes. And a sturdy chin strap closed with a lovely buckle will help keep your helmet in place during all your battles.
