The round shield was used throughout Europe from the lands of the Franks to Russia, and from the Scandinavian lands to Byzantium in a wide time period of the VI – beginning of the XI centuries.
It can be freely used at any LARP events where shields are used. A distinctive feature of the round shield is its mobility. It can be used equally successfully both in defense and in attack. With a round shield, it is much more convenient than with a triangular one to climb over walls or attack through rough terrain.
The fist grip of the shield allows you to fully realize its potential. You can hold the shield at arm’s length and maintain maximum distance with the enemy. You can use it for the entire length of your arm and carry out both defensive and attacking actions with it. It is equally effective to use both its plane and its edge. Rotate the shield in your hand to change the protection vector.
In general, the Vikings and Russians of the early Middle Ages used this type of shield very effectively for a reason and achieved many victories.
If necessary, additional clan signs or runic drawings can be made on the shield, which will give your shield more personality and attract the benevolence of the gods to it.
