“The owner of this helmet, or the people who placed it in the grave, may have lived through the very beginning of the story of Roman Britain.”
Dr Steven Willis, senior lecturer in archaeology at the University of Kent, said laser-scanning technology had been used to analyse the helmet and establish details of its manufacture, decoration and use.
He said: “The secrets of this helmet are only just beginning to emerge but we will know much more as the work progresses.”
