The Viking Age helmet pictured here is known as the Gjermundbu helmet, named after the farm it was found at near Haugsbygd, Norway, in 1943 CE. It was located inside a Viking Age burial chamber. Although at the time of discovery it was in nine pieces, it has since been reconstructed. It resides at the Museum of Cultural History connected with the University of Oslo in Norway.
