Dating back from 100 BC to 300 AD, Roman Centurion Helmets were worn by the main officers of the Ancient Imperial Roman Army. The name ‘Centurion’ was derived from each charge consisting of 100 men. Aside from allowing easy identification of Centurion Generals, the plumed helms colour variation specified officer rank and at times depict different units. Generals were also more visible to their men, the added height further suggesting higher command.
Vintage World Australia’s Roman Centurion helmet features sturdy, 18 and 20 gauge polished steel with brass ornamentation, linen inner padding, and a leather suspension liner and seven-hole, adjustable chin strap. This finely handcrafted helmet is wearable as a costume for re-enactments, Live Action Role-Playing (LARP) or just for fun. If you’d prefer to keep it on display, it comes with a recycled and treated mango wooden stand.
DISCLAIMER: All products on our website are reproductions, inspired by vintage and antique designs and made to closely match the originals. Each item is handmade by master artisans using often centuries old techniques and traditions. As they are handcrafted, no two items will be identical. Some natural variations and imperfections are inherent in the materials and construction processes used, making each item truly unique. In regards to our armour sets and warrior helmets, each item is made by hand using the same techniques that were used hundreds of years ago to make the original pieces. As such, these pieces naturally come in slightly different colours and sizes, and with some natural, unavoidable scratches and embellishments. These differences make these reproductions even more authentic, as no two sets of original armour were ever the same.
