In medieval times it was a common enough sight to see a knights heraldry emblazoned on his shield. This Wooden Crusader Lion Shield features a black and red rampant lion as the shields main charge, set against a faded brown field. This shield is made from quality wood and is a fully functional medieval shield. It is modelled after the typical heater shield that was used sometime after the middle of the 13th century. Like its medieval predecessor, this shield has a flat top and a triangular shape, with rounded sides that come to a point near the bottom.
