  • Celtic Shields
    Celtic and Viking shields and bucklers. Like the Romans, and most ancient warriors, the Celts used shields in battle. These were usually oval, but they could be rectangular, circular or hexagonal and decorated with floral, geometric and figural designs. The Celts often took great pride in the crafting of their shields. They used hide covered wood with metal ribbing, spines and edges and their designs were frequently imitated throughout the classic western world.
  • The Greek Spartan Shield
    The spartan hoplite shields were called "hoplon or aspis". The hoplon was a large, deeply concave, circular shield made of wood and bronze. The hoplon averaged about 31-39 inches in diameter and it was made with a wooden core, lined with thin leather, covered with bronze and nearly always painted. History confirms that warriors who lost their shield in battle, at the same time lost their honor. The Greek fighting techniques were developed around the use of the shield, therefore the phalanx was one of the most lethal troop formation in the ancient world.
  • Medieval Shields
    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.
  • Roman Shields
    Experts say that the shield reveals the way an entire nation fought. We can say the same of roman scutum. The scutum was a large body shield made of plywood covered with leather, making it both strong and flexible. In the center of the shield concentrated most of the weight (10 kilos approx), to receive the blows; the roman scutum was heavier than the Greeks hoplon. In battle, the shield used to create a unique formation known as the testudo, or tortoise: the soldiers on the front and sides of the formation would hold their shields outward, while the remainder would overlap their shields above the heads of the formation. This technique allowed the Romans to approach and undermine walls without much fear of arrows or rocks from above.
  • Viking shields
    Warfare was an important part of Nordic and Anglo-Saxon society. Men in these cultures were warriors first and foremost, farmers and traders second, and the shield was a powerful symbol of the warrior. In almost half of the Viking graves discovered, men rest beside a shield. The shield's body was typically made from planks of linden, also known as lime wood and many illustrations show a distinct rim to the shield. The central opening for the hand (the boss) is oval or round and crossed by a short wooden grip.
  • Battle ready shields
    Shields and bucklers of all times, which by its nature can be used in recreations and real combats. It is obvious that most of the shields manufactured nowadays are decorative, but do not forget that there are still people who prefer to spend their spare time fighting medieval style with real swords and real shields. Few craftsmen still manufacture this type of shields. The difference between functional and decorative shields is in the types of materials used and their finishes. The functional shields are manufactured with metals capable of receiving heavy blows of the sword, but they are not so pretty.

Shields

The shield is one of the oldest weapons, used for defence or attack. It's an authentic protection to shelter from the enemies' attacks. The shield is more than 5000 years old. Initially it was made by wood or willow wood.

Viking and Celtic shields

The viking shield was round, light and with the right size to shelter the torso. It had a handle on its back to guarantee the grip and the easy handling. The viking shield was usually decorated with northen mythology hand made paints.

Medieval Shields

The shield in the Middle Ages was used as protection in the hand to hand fight, but it wasn't useful to shelter from the archery or throwing weapons' attacks. From the end of the XIII century until the beginning of the XVI century the shields used to be triangular, but in the XVI century, they were rounded and metallic with some luxury gems or precious stones setting, to be shown in the medieval tournaments.

Different kinds of shields

  • Adarga: oval leather shield.
  • Buckler: small shield with an umbo in the center.
  • Aspis: shield used by the Greek infantry.
  • Clipeus: round and domed shield used by Greeks and Romans.
  • Pavise: oblong shield, protecting almost the whole body. 
  • Rondache: lenticular shield fixed on the arm with some straps.
  • Targe: medieval shield with metal fittings.
  • Scutum: Roman rectangular shield, straight or convex.
