|| This helmet is a light weight
opened faced helmet that was created in Burgundy, a region of France.
It was worn most of the time in the 16th century. The burgonet
has a small visor over your eyes. The face could be closed by adding
a falling visor.
||This helmet was usually used by
medieval foot soldiers in the 16th century. It was not expensive
to buy and it was easy to manufacture these helmets . It had a wide brim
and a moon shaped crest, upside down, on the top. It became heavier
when more metal was added for increased protection. This also made
it more expensive so fewer people could buy these helmets.
||This was also called the great
helm and was created in the 12th century. It protected the head very
well. It was used by knights for the next two centuries. It
was made of three basic pieces - the crown piece, a conical piece, and
a cylindrical piece for the sides of the helmets. The eye slits were
very small so crusaders wouldn't get their eyes cut open. This was
a pretty heavy helmet. It weighed 25 lb.. (55 kg).
||The armet was a metal helmet which
fully enclosed the face and head. It was most popular through the
15th and 16th centuries.
