Eight Plate Helmet
Time Period: 8th-18th century
Location: Tibet
Common Construction: Iron plates and lames with leather lacing.

The Tibetan Eight Plate Helmet is named because it is composed of eight iron plates riveted together much like a western Spangenhelm. The earliest archaeological piece dates back to the 8th century but they may have been used even earlier.

Some helmets had a lamellar neckguard constructed of small iron strips called "lames" that were laced together with leather. Lamellar armor was very popular in Tibet, which is one of the most common places to find existing historical examples.

I am really lonivg the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

Looks awesome. Great idea. With that wide angle, hanvig it set up a little bit and not on the brim of a hat adds more of the action and is less impeded by arms, paddles etc. The angle adjustment would be a good idea to see more of the board, but you don't have to overdo it.
