Hallaton helmet restored after nine year effort

After nine years of restorative work, the Hallaton helmet, a roman cavalry helmet, has been restored.

The artefact, which was found in fragments, has been restored by a team at the British Museum.

Dr Jeremy Hill, from the museum, said: “You can’t underestimate the shock and surprise this had when it was first found – Hallaton really transforms our understanding of the Roman conquest of Britain.”

He added: “Even if it went into the ground in 43, 44, 45AD, that is changing what we normally think is happening in the Roman conquest.
