The shield would have been the only piece of defensive equipment available to most Anglo-Saxon warriors during the Viking Age. This Viking Bjorn Anglo-Saxon Combat Shield is a beautiful hand-painted wooden shield featuring a quadrant black and red design inspired by Viking and Norse shields of old. It features a heavy metal boss in the center, and has steel studs lining the border. Larger shields such as this would have been of greater use in pitched battles, when they provided greater protection from projectile weapons and were necessary to construct a shield wall against the enemy. This shield would be perfect for that upcoming Renaissance Festival, LARP, or reenactment in your area.
