  • Galea (helmet)

    serch.it?q=Galea-(helmet)

    Imperial Gallic helmets. A galea was a Roman soldier's helmet. Some gladiators, specifically myrmillones, also wore bronze galeas with face masks and decorations, often a fish on its crest. The exact form or design of the helmet varied significantly over time, between differing unit types, and also between individual examples – pre-industrial production was by hand – so it is not certain to what degree there was any standardization even under the Roman Empire. Originally, Roman helmets were influenced by the neighboring Etruscans, people who utilised the "Nasua" type helmets. The Greeks in the south also influenced Roman design in its early history. The primary evidence is scattered archaeological finds, which are often damaged or incomplete. There are similarities of form and function between them.

The great helm or heaume, also called pot helm, bucket helm and barrel helm, is a helmet of the High Middle Ages which arose in the late twelfth century in the context of the Crusades and remained in use until the fourteenth century. The barreled style was used by knights in most European armies between about 1220 to 1350 AD and evolved into the frog-mouth helm to be primarily used during jousting contests.
