    £4.99 Members' price *


    A child size, gladiator-style helmet. This kids toy recreates the ornate helmets worn by the Roman army in gold plastic.

    Gladiator helmets, made of bronze, were much heavier than the helmets the Roman infantry (the army that fought on foot) would have worn and therefore less likely to be seriously damaged. Roman gladiators generally wore helmets, with the notable exception of the famous gladiator called Retiarius who was equipped with a net and trident, which is a three-pronged spear. The soldiers also wore arm and leg guards and some had shields.

    The helmet is a great kids history gift that encourages them to learn about the ancient Romans in a fun way.
