Authentic replica of an Anglo-Saxon shield, as would have been used during times of invasion by the Vikings in the 8th Century. Complete with pointed shield boss which would have doubled as a weapon in battle, the Anglo-Saxon shield was a key piece of defensive weaponry during this turbulent period in British history. Guaranteed to engage your class and provide an artefact handling opportunity and perceptive questions. Diameter approximately 45cm.

"Very nice and solid but nowhere near the given size - approx 45cms, it was actually 53cms. As we send collections of artefacts out to schools, this was useless as it would not fit in our largest boxes. At 45 cms it would have."
