Mycenaean bronze soldiers helmet from Tiryns grave 28, 1050-1025 BC. Nafplion Archaeological Museum.

Mycenaean archaeological finds suggest that both hunting and warfare played a crucial role in the symbolic representations of the Mycenaean Elites, The best known Mycenaean helmet is the Boars Tusk hamlet but Mycenaean archaeological finds have also revealed Mycenaean bronze helmets of various designs. These Mycenaean bronze helmets would have been easier to mass produce that the Boars Tusk Helmets which required the tusks of 12-15 boars per helmet.

The Mycenaeans were a Bronze Age Culture found primarily in mainland Greece in city states such as Thebes, Mycenae and Tiryns. The Mycenaean civilisation spanned the period from approximately 1750 to 1050 BC and ended abruptly during the collapse of Bronze Age culture in the eastern Mediterranean, to be followed by the so-called Greek Dark Ages. .
