Our Norman kite shield is made from 10mm plywood and covered with canvas, the shield has been hand painted with a light and dark blue design as seen on the Bayeux Tapestry. 
There are three strong adjustable leather straps fixed at the backside of the shield which allows you to wear it at the arm or hang it over the shoulder, on the reverse side there is leather covered padding to cushion to give protection to the fore arm.
The steel boss is unmounted and you can mount it either with the six screws with round heads provided, or with rivets or nails.
At just 2.8 kilos this shield is relatively light but still suitable for re-enactment.
