"Barbarian" military equipment studies
#46
Deepeka has to types of Sutton Hoo helmets one very bad, and the good one, which is:[url:2tlzdvng]http://www.deepeeka.com/store/comersus_viewItem.asp?idProduct=3700[/url]
I think this helmet is later than the 4th century, better fits the 5th onwards... Or earlier in Persian ranks.

The blue crest one soldier fits better the 5th or 6th.

Very impressive indeed, and not that expensive at $ 760 considering the quality of workmanship.
This one looks just as good as the "official" reconstruction at the British Museum..

The darn thing is outta stock at Amazon.fr. Sad
But get the book if you have a chance. Fascinating.
The BW plates from that french site were scanned from the book.
Lebedynsky specialises in steppe cultures. He also wrote books on the Scythians, the Sarmatians and the Alans and I think I'll indulge into investments there.. Big Grin
..And I suspect that the front plate of that alamannic helmet was not riveted. It seems the whole thing was held together with rawhide.

You could try an 2nd hand bookshop like www.abebooks.com . They've found loads of out of print books for me.

Edit: I've checked Abebooks myself, they have got it:

Could anyone point me to the lamelar cuiras like that on the horseman pictured above (page 2 of this thread)?
