The helmet most likely just rested on their head, but below it was a thin layer of chain-mail.

    They wore a padded cap, referred to as an arming cap or helm bonnet. Not only does this support the helm, it makes it fit properly, prevents it shifting around, and helps absorb the force of a blow to the head.
