The Scutum was a Roman soldier's best defense against enemy missile fire and close combat. As the shield was so large, legionnaires were able to form the "testudo", or a shield formation in which they would overlap the shields to make a near impenetrable wall against arrows and other missile fire. Our replica is a superb, full-size replica. This Roman Scutum is constructed from poplar wood and is tightly overlaid in linen and hand painted. The shield has a horizontal wooden grip on its reverse and a brass shield boss on its front. It is edged with riveted brass.

Please Note: The shield ships with the shield boss unmounted, so some assembly is required. Mounting hardware is included. The hue of the shield colors can vary.

Please Note: it is common for this item to have patination on the brass shield rim and shield boss - it can be cleaned to a bright sheen with polishing paste and scuff pads.
