Images of recreationist knights wearing ‘Great Helm’ style helmets at the Perth Medieval Fayre. The Great Helm is a cylindrical helmet that encloses the entire head, with a flat top and eye slits for vision. It was adopted as the predominant style of helmet worn by knights in the early thirteenth century, replacing earlier ‘norman’ styles that offered only a nasal bar to protect the face from injury.

The Perth Medieval Fayre is organised by the Western Australian Medieval Alliance (WAMA). In 2011 it was held at Supreme Court Gardens on 19 March. Enthusiasts and vendors showcased a range of medieval arts and crafts, from dancing, calligraphy and lace-making to demonstrations of the techniques, weaponry and apparel of medieval combat.
