It is not a Viking helmet, it has no horns. :P

Your thinking of Bronze Age Greeks, Minoans, Sicilians, Corsicans and the the various Sea People.  :o

The horns are on the inside.

That's what made the Vikings so angry and savage during raids.

The Vikings invented the duty to wear helmets while driving a vehicle. :lol:

Very cool.  Wiser heads can correct me, it appears to be a spangen type helmet  made of riveted small plates rather than a helmet raised from a single sheet of iron.  Lots easier to produce and makes better use of small pieces.  The crown seems to be rather high and rounded, room for some sort of liner or padding?  Nice.

Fun fact of the day: The longest Viking longship yet excavated was found when the Roskilde Viking ship Museum was expanding its facilities. :P
