The spear, axe and shield were the most basic arms of the Viking warrior. Our Norse Viking Raidere Black Death Medieval Warrior Battle Ready Functional Shield features a wooden construct with steel 16g boss and sturdy handle. The shield was the most common means of defense and finds from graves show timbers, such as fir, alder and poplar were used as they were dense and light and not inclined to split, unlike oak. In conjunction with stronger wood, Vikings often reinforced their shields. The Norse Viking Raidere Black Death Medieval Warrior Battle Ready Functional Shield is perfect for any Viking, Barbarian, or Warrior wanting a battle ready shield, this shield is also ideal for re-enactment, display, costume, or use as a theater and movie prop.

Note: This is a handmade collectible and may contain slight imperfections which are unique to each piece.

Vikings raided all across Europe during the Middle Ages and Dark Ages, conquering entire empires and toppling kings. The shield of a Viking was often just as important as the weapon he used, and Norse law actually dictated the requirements of his shield. Here you have a Viking Gokstad, which is a round wooden shield with a steel Boss at the center. The Boss is used to deflect sword blows and push the opponents sword away to open their defenses for an attack.
