Knossos helmet, 1450 B.C. Similar conical helmet made of bronze has been found in one of the as called "warriors' graves" near Knossos. This specimen has two large cheek guards probably stitched or riveted to the helmet and an upper pierced knot to hold a crest. Small holes all around the cheek guards and helmet lower edge were used for attachment of an internal padding more likely made of linen, felt or leather.
