And here's another text, which although underplaying the protective value of
sheet bronze, shows an example of a battle damaged bronze helmet about
2/3rds of the way through the article... which shows (at least to me) that
despite denting, the thin bronze definitely prevented penetration from edged
weapons.  Considering the movement of opponents during normal combat and
inherent deflection angles of curved surfaces, bronze armour was very
functional.
