7 ¼” diameter. Domed center on cylindrical support and flared base. Forged from a single piece and according in detail with examples in public collections. The boss was centered on the laminated wood shield to provide a deflecting surface as well as a compartment for the hand holding the grip. Rusted but substantially complete with one of its original fasteners which employs the rivet and rove system which was used to join planks which formed the hulls of the long ships. The system consisted of a nail with large head to distribute stress, which passed through and was peened over a similar head thus drawing the two planks together. Similarly, the shields were made of laminated boards secured in the same way. The survival of Viking shields or significant elements of them is exceedingly small. Until now, we’ve offered just one example in 52 years!
