    Norman Crusader Helmet

    The Normans were descendants of Scandinavian Viking (Norse) conquerors, and were located in northern France within the city-state Normandy of which they gave their name to "Normans". The Normans played a major political, cultural and military role in medieval Europe, known for their Christian views and backgrounds that date back to the Viking age of Scandinavia during the 11th and 12th centuries. In order to spread their religious views and political idealism they needed to take over most of Europe and they did so by conquests "crusades" which later lead to the successful Siege of Antioch and the expansion of the Crusader Kingdom in Transjordan and the region of Galilee.

    Now you can become part of an historical crusade with our new Medieval Anglo Norman Crusader Helmet! Reenact the Siege of Antioch or use it as a simple costume accessory or display piece. Find this unique medieval helmet and more only at!
