Crosby Garrett Roman Helmet


Takes place daily until Sun 26 Jan 2014

General event

The exceptional rare bronze ceremonial parade helmet, named after the hamlet where it was discovered, has been hailed by experts as one of the great masterpieces of Roman metalwork. Dating from the late first century to third century AD, it is unparalleled in its detail and the most complete and elaborate of only three such helmets to have been found in Britain.

The mask portrays a haunting, youthful male face framed by a ring of exquisitely detailed curls and topped by an extremely rare Phrygian cap decorated with a griffin.

The helmet will be on display for a limted time only so booking is recommended.
