The Tjele helmet piece, two Gotland fragments, a Kiev fragment, and the Gjermundbu helmet are among the five Viking Age helmets known to survive. Gjermundbu's remains were the only ones that could be rebuilt. It was discovered on a farm in Ringerike, Norway, called Gjermundbu. Gjermundbu is in Buskerud, Norway, and is located in Haugsbygd, a settlement northeast of Hnefoss.


The helmet was made around the tenth century. The spangenhelm pattern was used to create this four-plate iron helmet. This helmet features a rounded cap, and there is evidence that it may have had protective mail as well. It has a "goggle" protection around the eyes and nose that forms a mask, implying a close resemblance to early Vendel Period helmets.


Vikings wore simpler helmets, often caps with a basic nose guard, according to runestones and other depictions. According to research, the Vikings rarely used metal helmets. Metal horned hats, apparently for ceremonial purpose, have been found dating back to the Nordic Bronze Age, some 2,000 years before the Viking Age.


Despite popular belief, there is no evidence that Vikings used horned helmets in battle because the horns would be ineffective in close combat, but horned garments may have been worn in ritual situations. The horned and winged helmets associated with Vikings in popular mythology were created by Romanticism in the nineteenth century. Richard Wagner's ring opera may have been the first to use the horned helmet: the male chorus wore horned helmets, while the other characters wore winged helmets.
