Shields

Shields were the oldest form of protection and used to block injury from weapons.  They could also be used as a bludgeoning weapon. The shield could also display symbols as a form of recognition, especially necessary for the medieval knights on the battlefield and in tournaments. Over time the shield became smaller, eventually disappearing as it became unnecessary.
