The Roman Empire - Celtic Agen-Port Military Helmet - 50 BC

MorBius
The term Celts (pronounced "kelts" or "selts") refers to any of a number of ancient peoples who dominated much of western and central Europe in the 1st millennium BC and spoke the Celtic language. By the 5th century BC they had spread across most of Europe and by 390 BC they had crossed the Alps into Italy, attacking Rome and sacking the city in 387 BC. Over the next 400 years, Rome would wage war against these Celtic Tribes, now know as Gauls. culminating in Rome's eventual conquest of the European Gauls by Julius Caesar during his campaign of 58-50 BC and Rome's eventual invasion of Britain by the Emperor Claudius' AD 43. However, war with various Celtic tribes throughout the Roman empire never ceased, and continued for the next 500 years. The military helmet modeled here is one type used by a Celtic noble around 50 BC. Please note: As with previous time periods, only the wealthiest of Ceitic warriors could afford armor of any type, so helmets would rarely be used by the common soldier. #army #battle #Celt #Celtic #helmet #military #noble #Rome #war #warrior
