Description of the Product

Although not every Viking could afford a sword or an iron helmet, a shield protected even each of the spearmen. With the tactics employed by the Vikings a man without a shield would have been a dead one very quickly, and therefore a shield was the primary piece of armor a warrior heading for battle would acquire. This finished shield has been pre-stained dark brown and has a steel boss and steel rim, all bolted on. A steel rim would keep a shield intact long after a wooden shield without one had deteriorated. The shields were used not only defensively, but also imaginatively in various attacks. The back is covered in felt and has a wooden handle and arm strap of sturdy leather.

Diameter 74 cm (29"), 1.3 cm (1/2") thick. Weight 5,8 kg.
