Stamford Bridge helmet found in antique shop

A rusty helmet labeled "Viking Helmet found in the River Derwent at Stamford Bridge by D R Lancaster, May 21, 1950" has been discovered in a Midlands, England antique shop. The helmet has been dated by experts to the 11th century.

The helmet could be the only surviving artifact of the Battle of Stamford Bridge, where King Harold Godwinson defeated Viking invaders in 1066, just days before his own defeat by William the Conqueror.
