The heater shield is a form of European medieval shield and its shape developed from the kite shield in the late 12th century. 
The name heater shield was created by the Victorians because of the similar shape to that of a clothes iron..
Easier to use on foot than the kite shield the heater shield became popular and further developed into jousting with notch to accommodate the lance. 
The heater shield lost its importance as plate armour became more popular.
