Starting from 1330 and until 1410 years Bascinet shaped helmets were the most popular in medieval Europe. It was developed from the skull cap. Approximately since 1330 year the bottom edge of high bascinet became more extended and elongated to cover the ears and back part of the neck. After 1350 year the skull of bascinet covers the cheeks and reaches the middle of the neck. Such shape was in use without big changes til the1420 year. During the last quarter of the XIV century pointed apex was “moving” back so far until in the XV century the back side of the skull became almost vertical. Some bascinets helms had an onion-shaped skull. However such form were common only in medieval Germany. Bascinet without visor was worn under the Great helm. Visor was evolved from the “bretèche” – detachable nose protection. It was fixed to the helmet with a brow-mounted pivot or hook. Helmets with nasal triangular visors were popular in medieval Italy and Germany in 1340 – 1370 years.
