A spangenhelm is a term applied to conical helmets of single or multi-plate construction. They could have a nasal and sometimes had a mail aventail attached to the rear of the helmet.

Spangenhelms were typcially used by Western European warriors in Saxon England, Viking Scandanavia and other areas of Europe in the 11th and 12th centuries.
