The Vikings were a fierce people, known for their keen instinct in battle and their love of exploration. One of the most iconic symbols of Viking culture is the helmet. While there are many different types of Viking helmets, all of them were designed for one purpose: to protect the wearer in battle.

Viking helmets date back to the late eighth century. The first recorded use of a Viking helmet was during the Battle of Reford in 780 AD.

During this battle, the Vikings were taken down by a large battalion of Frankish soldiers. Despite their defeat, the Vikings' use of helmets impressed the Frankish soldiers and helped to shape the way that future generations of warriors would fight.

Viking helmets were typically made from iron or steel and were often decorated with intricate designs. Some Viking helmets even had horns attached to them, which served both as a symbol of power and as an effective way to deflect enemy blows.

In addition to being practical, Viking helmets were also seen as a status symbol. Wealthy warriors could afford to have their helmets made from prized materials and decorated with the most impressive designs.
