The Gjermundbu helmet is a Viking Age helmet. The helmet was first discovered by accident during 1943 at the Gjermundbu farm near Haugsbygd in the municipality of Ringerike in Buskerud, Norway. During the Viking age, helmets were typically fairly simple: a bowl with a prominent nose guard, Yet the Gjermundbu helmet has clear evidence of battle damage (a sword blow and an arrow puncture), suggesting it was used in earnest fights.
