Expands upon the work done by Merhart in 1941. "The significants of helmets ... may be judged by their rarity in comparison with swords, spears, and axes. This suggests that helmets, like other pieces of armor, must have been limited to the ruling class and thus may have been symbols of rank." (summary) Highly illustrated.
