Crosby Garrett Helmet heading to Carlisle’s Tullie House

A Roman cavalry helmet sold for £2.2m after it was discovered in a Cumbrian field is to go on show in Carlisle from Friday.

The Crosby Garrett Helmet, named after the village near Penrith where it was found using a metal detector, will be displayed at Tullie House Museum.

Museum director Hilary Wade said it was “one of the most extraordinary objects from the Roman period in Britain”.
