The Scutum, or shield, was the main form of body protection of the Roman soldiers.
Made to authentic perfection following expert guidance of various historians, experts, museum-curators and enthusiasts.
It served the purpose to deflect missiles targeted at the soldiers, as well as protect them from the impact of hand held weapons yielded at them. The shield's large size allowed the soldiers to form a “tustudo’’ or shield wall that could protect them during an advance. Available in two sizes.
