Officer's helmet from Korea, Asia. Collected by S. Wakefield. Given to the Museum in 1906.  This is a very ornate officer's helmet from Seoul in South Korea. It probably dates to the early 16th century and would have belonged to a wealthy man. by sandy

A silk purse embroidered by Marie Antoinette while imprisoned in the Temple. This too was formerly owned by Madame de Tourzel and as a nice touch, it was listed with a replica of Marie Antoinette’s final letter, sent to her sister in law Madame Élisabeth on the 16th October 1793. This purse was expected to sell for €12,000 – €15,000 but went for €97,700. by penny

The Aquamarine Pineflower Tiara: Cartier is responsible for this gem and it features aquamarines set in a pine cone motif interspersed with rectangular stones. This piece originally belonged to the Queen Mother. It was an anniversary gift from her husband, King George VI. Among her collection, this wasn't a real favorite. She didn't wear it often before gifting it to her granddaughter, Princess Anne. Anne had the gem altered at some point; she shortened it to make it easier to wear. by jo

Gladiators, in all their forms, were popular, however cruel, entertainment throughout Roman history. The games died out in the early 5th century when the Emperor Honorius put a ban on them. Ironically Honorius’s rule would also see the sacking of Rome by the Visigoths, one of many events that would eventually culminate in the end of the Western Roman Empire. This gladiator helmet, now on display in the Royal Ontario Museum, is believed to date to the last century of these games. by jerry
