Bascinet (also bassinet, basinet, or bazineto) of 1380-1410 years, from Higgins Armoury Museum is a type of helmet common in medieval Europe. It replaced the topfhelms in the XIV-XV centuries, and was very common in heavy infantry and cavalry. In fact, the bascinet is the base on which you can put various visors.
Bascinet Hounskull from the Higgins Armory Museum, USA
But, paradoxically, the first models were not visored at all, they were dressed under a big tophelm, in order to withstand very powerful blows. Naturally, such a design was very cumbersome, and enjoyed limited popularity, in tournaments or in horse-drawn battles.
For foot soldiers, the ideal option was a bascinet (bacinet) with a visor, providing reliable protection, with a moderate mass (about 7 kg.). Here is an option hundsgugel - "dog head", which was popular from the end of XIV to the middle of the XV century. This practical and very reliable helmet, the conical shape of the visor guarantees excellent protection from the sword, spear impacts and arrows, and the holes provide comfortable breathing.
Up to now, about 40 specimens with visors have survived, and a few dozen without. The material for research is quite enough, and we can say that our reconstruction is an exact analogue of European helmets of the XIV-XV centuries.
