Helmet (metallic head-gear of soldier) since olden times existed in Russia. In Ix- X centuries the helmets were done from several metallic plates, which were being connected between themselves by rivets. After assembling the helmet was decorated with silver, gold and iron cover plates with the ornament, inscriptions or images. In those times was extended the smoothly bent, elongated upwards helmet with the rod above. West Europe did not know the helmets of this form completely, but they were widely disseminated both in front Asia and in Russia. However, four preserved from THE X century military nagolov'yam of this type include two helmets from the famous Chernigov barrow black grave, one - of the Chernigov barrow To gul'bishche and one - of the large Gnezdovskogo barrow on Smolenshchine.
