The standard reference work and an indispensable source for anyone interested in European bucklers or shields.
This book is the culmination of 25 years of research in the specialized subject of the European medieval and renaissance buckler – a small, centre-gripped shield.
In the historical sciences, the buckler has not yet received the attention it deserves. The work of Herbert Schmidt aims to fill this gap.
All aspects of the buckler are dealt with in detail – definition, history, typology, methods of use and carrying. An additional chapter on Scandinavian bucklers by Rolf Fabricius Warming completes the look at the European buckler.
Additionally, the lesser-known Georgian bucklers of the Khevsureti are covered in unprecedented detail.
A detailed catalogue brings together over 50 extant bucklers from several museums and collections. Each buckler is presented with complete measurements and several photographs showing all relevant details.
