The medieval shields are part of the wartime history of all civilizations. The Byzantines used the oval cut shield. The Normans used the almond shaped shield so they could stick it in the ground. The Celts had squared shields with beatiful drawings.

As other parts of the armour were developed (helmet, gorget, gauntlets, etc..) The shield has become smaller and lighter, but made ​​of materials resistant to strong sword blows, arrows or maces. Shields not only defended, also served to identify the gentleman who wore it, or at least his military rank. Many were decorated with the symbols of their family.

The shields we manufacture nowadays are mostly decorative and represent the names of famous kings, brave knights and fantastic characters.
