Characteristics of the Viking Shields
Viking shields can come in a variety of sizes, but they are usually round. The most common shields were made of solid pieces of wood connected by metal bands. At the back, Viking shields had rope or leather straps for handling during battle.
Umbo in Viking Shields
Generally, Viking warriors did not make weapons or shields because most of them were looted on the battlefield. Therefore, most of the time Viking shields were different from one warrior to another. However, a common feature of all shields was the metal umbo on the front.
