Nasal Helmet Nasal Helmet Nasal Helmet

The nasal helmet was a tight-fitting, conical, skull-cap like helmet that gained popularity in the late ninth century. It was easy to make and offered the basic protection necessary at the time. The source of its name was the single strip of metal that covered the nose of the wearer. It declined in popularity during the twelfth century, as knights began to look for more face protection, although some of the poorer soldiers held to its simple construction for a longer period of time.
