Crosby Garrett Roman Helmet

Crosby Garrett Roman Helmet:

Crosby Garrett is a hamlet with some very old houses and a part Anglo-Saxon church perched high up on a hill.

Archaeological finds within the parish boundaries have proved that man has inhabited the area from at least Stone Age times.

One such find, in 2010, was a copper alloy Roman helmet that may have belonged to a cavalry officer.

The helmet was discovered by metal detector enthusiasts and sold at Christie’s for £2.3m to an unidentified private bidder, who has allowed it to go on public display at the Tullie House Museum in Carlisle.

As a result, the Crosby Garrett Roman cavalry helmet has attracted thousands of visitors since being displayed.
