Royal Armouries Horned Helmet Leeds

Picture of the horned helmet that is the symbol of the Royal Armouries museum, Leeds.

Anyone who has visited the Royal Armouries museum here in Leeds will most likely recognize the helmet in the above picture. The horned helmet is the symbol of the museum and is a modern interpretation of Henry VIII’s Horned Helmet. You can see the actual helmet which is part of the collection here in Leeds.

Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I gave King Henry VIII of England armour that included the horned helmet in 1514. Today here at the Leeds museum this helmet is the only piece of that gift to survive.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
