Information for Roman Imperial Gallic Helmets:

the third group of Roman helmets was the (Imperial Gallic). These Roman helmets were based on the type of helmet used by the Gaul’s. They were more decorated than earlier Roman Helmets and had a distinctive embossed set of eyebrows. They also had a re-enforced peak with a ridged extension at the back as a neck-guard. The helmets were most probably made by Gallic smiths and so retained the original influence in construction and design. The Roman Imperial Gallic Helmets were in use from the late 1st century BC through to the early 2nd century AD. Most Gallic helmets were made of iron with brass decorations including small circular bosses on the helmet and the cheek pieces. The crest holders consisted of a right-angled foot that slid into a tube on the crown of the helmet.

Our Roman Imperial Gallic Face Helmet is similar to the Kalkriese imperial face mask found at Kalkriese Germany. The brass face is attached with a hinge to a steel Gallic helmet and decorated with brass.
