Roman Cavalry Helmet

Roman Cavalry Helmet
1st century AD - From Witcham Gravel, Ely, Cambridgeshire.
The helmet would have protected the wearer's head with an inner iron head-piece and neck-guard, which are now largely missing. Though the small bosses would have helped deflect blows from weapons, the outer bronze casing is mostly decorative.
The crest box, one cheek-piece and several of the bosses are now missing.

In the British Museum.
