Noble Friends, Especially Saxons:

On this date in 1982 the Saxon Coppergate Helmet was discovered at York 
during construction of the Jorvik Viking Centre. The helmet is the best 
preserved of the six surviving Saxon helms so far found. You can see 
photographs, history and analysis of this striking helmet at 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coppergate_Helmet and at 
https://www.yorkmuseumstrust.org.uk/collections/search/item/?id=8723 .

Wikipedia offers pages on the other five Saxon helmets as well:
