Roman helmet's 'astounding' restoration
A Roman helmet which was buried in a Leicestershire field for around 2,000 years has been displayed at the British Museum.
It was in hundreds of pieces when it was found in Market Harborough, in 2000, and has since been put back together.
Ken Wallace said when he discovered the helmet the metal fragments looked like "crushed cornflakes".
Mr Wallace added that he was amazed by its restoration by experts at the British Museum.
