From the Times newspaper yesterday http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article6861130.ece , shame that there is no proven contextual provenance.

The link doesn't work. I think it's the comma after .ece

this should work :

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article6861130.ece

Anyway, I'd love to think that this came from the site of the battle and that it was even worn by the very Viking who held the bridge, BUT, I think it's just as likely to be a Viking age spangenhelm from elsewhere that was labeled as coming from Stamford Bridge to attract a buyer. It's a shame indeed... Sad
