A medieval soldier's shield is a part of his armor and it has most likely evolved over the course of time to adapt to the advancing developments in warfare and weaponry. In the early middle ages, wooden shields covered in leather were used as a primary defense by the troops. But the medieval shield's construction became susceptible as projectiles became sophisticated over time, and this forced craftsmen to incorporate iron and steel support in their shield designs. Medieval Shields also became status symbols in medieval society.
