The Crosby Garrett helmet is one of the most significant and spectacular finds from Roman Britain for many years. Fashioned in two pieces, bowl and tinned face mask, it was used by a Roman cavalryman in the ritualised form of training known as the hippika gymnasia. This sumptuously illustrated booklet provides detailed photographs of the helmet, together with a description of it and insight into the archaeological background to the find, and places the helmet within its wider context amidst Roman arms and armour.
