Kite Shields

In our Kite Shields section you will see various styles made from wood and including kite shield blanks for you own decoration. With strapping and padding on the back they are ready to use.
A kite shield was typically used during the 10th–12th centuries in the form of a reverse teardrop shape or with a flat-top later in the period. Again the Victorian named the kite shield due to the similar appearance to that of a kite.
