Scutum Junior, Child's Roman Shield, Wood

This shield is a downsized reproduction of an ancient tower shield (so-called scutum) from the 1st / 2nd century AD, as carried by the legionaries during the Roman Empire. True Roman troopers never left the camp without their shields. Just like the armour (lorica), the helmet (galea) and the short sword (gladius), the shield was an essential piece of any brave legionary's attire. More information...
