River Tees Viking Helmet?

I've been seeing a couple of posts here there and everywhere (albeit from a few years back) about this supposed Viking helmet found in the River Tees, supposedly post-1000AD with a face plate. Apart from 'RIVER TEES - VIKING HELMET?!?!?' I can't find anything else about it. Do you guys know anything?

Re: Drum sticks

Drum brushes also be good. Don't forget to hold one like a pen and the other like a knife! Also paradiddle. Lots of paradiddle. No paradiddlediddles though!

Re: Looking to get some viking gear

Hi!

Not part of a group yet, but looking at http://www.vikingsofmiddleengland.co.uk/index.html as it's the only one close by!

I take it some of the stuff was too machine made and historically inaccurate then? XD

Gotta have a bit of extra padding for those cold winter months! Haha :D Glad I can save a few pennies and not get a gambeson though!

Re: Looking to get some viking gear

Thank god :D Don't know how I'll be a mean viking when I'm afraid of tiny little flappy things though! Do you have to wear a gambeson underneath chainmail or can you just have chainmail over a tunic? By the way, found an axe http://www.medieval-arms.co.uk/detail/id/1619/name/medieval-viking-axe-with...

Re: Looking to get some viking gear

You mean like...real live tiny moths!? Inside my shirt!?

Oh god T_T I have an irrational fear of moths. Think I'll just not get any mail at all!! Do vikings use padded armor and gambesons?

Re: Making a Viking Shield

Plywood it is! :D I was thinking about doing something like this on the back http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2010/160/e/6/Viking_shield_by_jarkko1.jpg so it doesn't look so plain. Think that would still work with the plywood sheet? Why use PVA glue? Wouldn't wood glue be better? And for the cover,...

Re: Looking to get some viking gear

Awesome, thanks for the advice! I am from England, the midlands, so I've got a pretty good reach around everything. I'll have a look at the soft kits you linked, definately want some comfortable shoes so not gonna skimp on those. Is there a problem with the sizings of mail normally? As for the helme...

Making a Viking Shield

Hi! I'm looking to start a new project, a viking round shield, but I'm on a bit of a budget. I have about £40 to spend on making the shield, including paint. So far, I've singled out some materials and costs, but looking for advice from someone who's made one of these before. Update!! The materials ...
