helmet

Everywhere I look, I’ve been coming across these Roman helmets (in the weirdest places!) Here’s a pretty cool site on Roman military equipment with excellent pics. I have to look into the history of the helmet with the ridge or plume along the top for potential meanings/symbolism (?) I think these were used more for peacocking than battle.
