Etrusco-Italic helmet

Etrusco-Italic helmet

Several years ago, a bronze helmet was excavated at the Gradec archaeological site near the village of Krn. At the same time, other valuable finds from the early and late Iron Age were discovered at the foot of the hill, suggesting that the area may have served as a “place of worship” in nature to the then inhabitants. This 20 cm high bronze helmet was made in one piece and is an example of an Etrusco‑Italic helmet. Based on the wave pattern on the neck guard, experts place these helmets in the late 2nd or early 1st century BC. They can be found in areas from Spain to Greece and southern Russia.

The helmet is kept at the Tolmin Museum, and will be presented to the public in a special exhibition at the end of 2020, along with other finds from the site.
