Beowulf is the oldest surviving epic poem in Old English and is commonly cited as one of the most important works of Anglo-Saxon literature. The full poem survives in the manuscript known as the Nowell Codex and is located in the British Library. It was written in England between the 8th and 11th century by an anonymous Anglo Saxon poet. The manuscript was badly damaged in 1731 in a fire at Ashburnham House where it was held along with a collection of other medieval manuscripts. Beowulf is the name of the hero of the poem. He goes to the aid of the king of the Danes whose great hall is plagued by the monster Grendel. Beowulf kills Grendel with his bare hands and then slays Grendel’s mother with the sword of a giant that he finds in her lair.
The Beowulf Helmet is of late Anglo-Saxon/Viking design. It is constructed from 18 gauge steel with antiqued brass decoration befitting the status on an Anglo-Saxon Hero. It features and adjustable leather liner and buckled chin strap and a zinc plated chainmail aventail to protect the neck.
