Kettle Helm History

The kettle helmet began appearing in Europe in the 12th century. It gets its name from the fact that it looked like a kettle, or medieval cooking pot. The helmet was most common amongst infantry as it was ideal for protecting against sword swings from cavalry units. It was historically relatively inexpensive and did not interfere with vision, hearing, or breathing, adding to its popularity. A version of this medieval helmet reappeared in WWI, around 800 years after it was first being worn.
