This helmet belongs to the so-called “Black Grave” (Chornaya Mogila) type of helmets (Chernihiv).
Early archaeological finds of Chernihiv-type helmets date back to the 10th century. Historians have come to the general conclusion that they originated in Russia under the influence of Asian helmets through the Turkic peoples, and in the second half of the 10th century they were adopted by their neighbors — similar helmets are found in Poland, Sambia, Hungary. They became very popular in Poland, so it became the second center of their production[3]. In Russia, these helmets belonged to noble warriors and became widespread not only in the south, but also in the north, including the Novgorod lands. In the west, helmets of the Chernihiv type were used until the XII century, in Russia itself — until the middle of the XIII century.
