Quick overview:

Republican Celtic Helmet(Forêt de Rouvray)


Montefortino helmets are generally characterized by a conical or round shape with a raised central knob, and a protruding neck guard as well as cheek plates to protect the sides of the head. Other common features include a "rope"-type pattern around the edge, and "pinecone"-type patterning on the crest knob. Note that the classifications are those used by archaeologists, rather than Celts or Romans, who, if they did distinguish among these types, have left no known record of the terms they used.


Descripion: The Roman empire began expanding to the North around 540 BCE. As they did so, they encountered many hostile tribes and groups, resulting in battles over much of Europe during the following centuries.
As a result, there are many archaeological sites which provide valuable information on both Roman culture and that of the people they encountered.
