Medieval Shields

Medieval Shields

When one imagines a valiant Medieval knight of soldier, he is often clad in Medieval armour, wielding his sword in on hand a shield in the other. He is also on his iron-clad horse riding in to battle or charging an opponent. While swords are the most glorified of the Medieval weapons, the Medieval shield is often the most prominent war self-defense mechanism.


The type of shield that one typically thinks of was, surprisingly not the most common type of shield used during Medieval times. These large shields were most often used during warfare when there were flying projectiles like arrows, and during jousting events.


The buckler is a little-known type of Medieval shield that was commonly used as a part of Medieval armour. This shield is small, often with a concave center where the bearer would place his hand to hold the shield. The surface of this shield wasn’t flat like battle shields were. They were also a lot smaller in size. These types of Medieval shields were effectively used in hand-to-hand combat.


Unless you’re an actor or historical re-enactor playing a soldier going into battle or a knight participating in a tournament, a buckler is the type of Medieval shield you should don to be the most historically accurate. At Historic Reproductions, we have a variety of Medieval shields and Medieval armour to choose from, all made by world-recognized designer and producer Get Dressed for Battle. For more information about our shields or our inventory, please contact us.
