As fearsome as they were, even Viking warriors were not above wearing helmets. And here in this section of Medieval Armour, you'll find not only all of our Viking helmets, but also all of our Norman Helmets and our Anglo-Saxon Helmets, as all three of these peoples favored head protection that descended from a single, common source. Many of our Viking helms are remarkably simple and straightforward, almost like the warriors who favored them. Many Norse helmets in general, actually, replicate the traditional spangenhelm or the Norman helm, both of which were designed with protection first and appearance second. Not all of our Viking helmets are so uncomplicated, though. Some, like the Coppergate helmet, are designed to be ornate and impressive, while others, like the Viking winged helmet and the Sutton Hoo helmet, are impressive shows of Viking style that were no doubt designed to intimidate and inspire fear. Most, if not all of our Viking helmets are also steel helmets, and many of them are designed to take a few good knocks, meaning that they can be used as reenactment helmets and SCA helmets with ease. We even offer a few Viking horned helmets, because even though they didn't actually wear them, nothing says 'Viking' like a pair of horns on your helmet. Historically accurate and fully functional, the Viking Helmets and Norman Helmets offered here at Medieval Armour are all a great choice for any warrior to wear whenever they plan on going into SCA combat or reenactments, as well as great display pieces for any Viking enthusiast to show off and enjoy.
