Benty Grange Helmet

Continuing Display

Weston Park Museum

This 7th century, boar-crested Anglo-Saxon helmet is one of the most significant objects in Sheffield’s museum collections.

 

It was excavated by Thomas Bateman in 1848 at the Benty Grange farm in Monyash, Derbyshire and was the first Anglo-Saxon helmet to be discovered.

See it in the Beneath Your Feet gallery alongside a replica showing what it would have looked like when it was first made.
