A Roman cavalry parade helmet, early 3rd century AD and probably made in the Danube valley.
This elaborately decorated helmet was made from a single sheet of metal. It has an eagle’s head on the crest, winged sea-dragons, and a feathered border that ends in a bird’s head.
It is too fragile to ever have been worn into battle. It would have been used as part of a ceremony or parade.
It is in the Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery
