Crosby Garrett Roman Helmet:
Crosby Garrett is a hamlet with some very old houses and a part-Anglo-Saxon church perched high up on a hill.
A rare Roman helmet, named after the village near Penrith where it was found, has gone on display at the Tullie House Museum in Carlisle.
In this case, the helmet was discovered by metal detector enthusiasts and sold for £2.2m at auction in 2010 to a private bidder, who has allowed it to go on show.
As a result, the Crosby Garrett Roman cavalry helmet attracted thousands of visitors since being displayed.
