    Heater Shields

    In our Heater Shields section you will see various styles made from both wood and steel also including heater shield blanks for you own decoration. 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.
  • Kite Shields

    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.
