Though Vikings are commonly portrayed with great horns or wings on their helmets, there is no evidence to suggest this was true. Such adornments, while imposing, would likely have been impractical, the helmet could get tangled in brush, and a the horns could catch an errant spear or strike as the Viking ducked or dodged, knocking his helmet about.

True, no such accoutrements have been found, but it is also equally true that few Viking helmets in general have been found. Few warriors would go into battle without some head protection, and it is interesting that so few examples of this essential piece of wargear are documented. Perhaps there are other styles and examples yet unknown or lost to time.

This Viking Horned Helmet is made of 18 gauge steel. The interior is blackened. Two brass pieces above the eye give the appearance of archaic eyebrows. The horns are real animal horn, wrapped with stitched suede leather at their bases. The horns are screwed into the side of the helmet, and can be tightened from the inside with a screwdriver if necessary.


Please Note: Because the horns are real animal horn, their coloring and patterning will vary.
