      Shields
Shields were the most extensively utilized form of defensive weapons in the ancient world. Principally used as protection against missiles & blades and also as weapons with which to actively parry blows, bearers wielded shields just as effectively to launch offensive attacks, carry magico-religious protective medicines and create visual noise to confuse or frighten the enemies.

Today, shields have been recognized as impressive examples of a culture's artistry and ingenuity. People have great interest in our shields as they are widely used in the re-enactment, LARP events, movies and games based on historic events. They are also being used as pieces of art for decorating homes.

A variety of sturdy materials are utilized, singly or in combination, for the manufacture of our shields: leather, softwood, medium density wood, hardwood, cloth and plain or embossed metal. All our shields are hand painted and are available as a hanging piece of art or as a hand held battle ready shield with handle at the back.

Medium Shield Boss
Item Code: SNS2193

A shield boss is acup that covers the wielder/soldier's hand. It is placed over a circular hole in the centre of a shield. A simple flat vertical piece of wood placed over the reverse side, will then serve as a handle. This produces a superior center of gravity than if the wielder simply grasped a regular protruding handle on the reverse. Our bosses are super heavy duty iron, weighing approx 515 grams each, and measure 7.5" across. They are an appealing subdued black colour (rather than silvery and polished) and have six holes for mounting.

Available in 14 gauge.
