description

The Wollaston Helmet (also known as Pioneer Helmet) is a 7th century Anglo-Saxon helmet. It is named after the place Wollaston (Northamptonshire, England), where it was found in the 1997 year. This boar-crested helmet belongs to the group B1 in classification of Arwidsson.

Helmet frame consists of the wide brow-band, nose-to-nape strip and lateral strip with one-piece-forged plates in the gaps. Over the strips, there are steel rods. 

Nose-to-nape band is extended to form a rounded nasel. Both, nasel and eye cutouts are edged with steel strips.

Cheek plates are also edged, but with thicker strips and are attached to the brow-band with hinges. There is under-chin leather belt with steel buckle for good fixation on the warrior head.
