The infantry was the backbone of a Roman legion. They wore heavy armor that comprised of a breastplate, a helmet, a buckler on the left arm and greaves on the right leg. The helmets were made up of leather or un-tanned skins, which were further, strengthened and decorated by gold or bronze. The process of tanning the leather culminated in the formation of helmets which involved the conversion of hides into leather. This conversion was done by soaking them in a solution of tannin; a solution of acid that was often prepared out of oak gall or bark. Later with time, Roman Helmets were beaten out of a single sheet of brass or iron, this affords much better protection for the soldiers.
Many times, helmets were crowned with a spike or knob which was designed for attaching crests. These roman helmets sometimes even had tubes that were attached at the side of the helmet for feathers. The Roman helmet worn by the commanders had a crest mounted on it, which often was made up of feathers or horse-hair. These feathers were added to give the helmets an imposing look that added an illusion of height which helped them appear more commanding and in charge. The crests were attached to central support, called crest plume or block holder, on the Roman helmet.
