<p>A mini pewter replica of one of the helmets found at Sutton Hoo - an important archaeological site in England. The replica measures 2.5cm high. <br /> <br /> A warrior's face - the strong brows inlaid with red garnets, the nose and mouth gilded and its surface tinned a silvery colour - this is how the Sutton Hoo helmet once appeared to those who saw it. Beautifully crafted and visually stunning, it would have inspired awe. But it was also fully capable of protecting its wearer in battle. <br /> <br />The original helmet was discovered together with other priceless treasures including a ship in the great mound at Sutton Hoo, Suffolk, by the archaeologist Basil Brown in the late 1930s. He was employed by the owner of the estate, Mrs Edith Pretty, who generously donated the whole find to the British Museum. <br /><br /> This mini version of the helmet is a great memento of this wonderful archaeological find.</p>
