Ready yourselves! With our various wooden shields, kids will become powerful heroes able to defeat monsters, dragons and pirates with ease.
A shield is one of the oldest war instruments. It is attested in Sumeria during the third millennium before the Christ and was really important to the Greek phalanxes of Athena and Sparta alike. Every medieval knight had its own shield and handled it to protect himself from arrows and swords. Today, our firearms made this instrument less useful, but it is still used under the form of riot shields to protect policemen from angry crowds and their projectiles.
Shields were made out of wood, bronze, iron, steel and even plastic. They have been rectangular (in the Roman Empire), circular (with the Vikings), oval (as in Byzantium), etc. They have been either very small (as the buckler) or very tall (as the tower shields).
