A helmet said to have belonged to St. Wenceslaus I, Duke of Bohemia. Carved on silver nasal is a rather abstract looking image of the crucified Christ that was probably made in Gotland in the late 10th century. Often called 'Norman' or 'nasal' helmets, this design was very popular in France and the German Empire and was also used by the Norse. This is the only surviving example with a demonstrable Norse connection. The helmet it self was probably made in Germany or possibly Poland.
